Publisher's Summary

Toddler a**holery is a normal part of human development - not unlike puberty, except this stage involves throwing food on the floor and taking swings at people who pay your way in life. For parents of toddlers, it's a "you better laugh so you don't cry" period.

Bunmi Laditan's hilarious, satirical guide to toddlerhood offers parents instant (and very welcome) comic relief - along with the very good news that It's Not Your Fault. Chapters cover the cost of raising a toddler, feeding your toddler, potty training, tantrums, how to manage the holidays, and "how not to die inside". Parents will see themselves in the very funny sections on taking your toddler to restaurants ("One parent will spend their time walking your toddler around the restaurant and outside like a cocker spaniel, while the other, luckier parent will eat alone."), things you thought you'd never say that you now say as a parent of a toddler ("I can tell you're pooping because your eyes are watering."), and how to order pizza ("Spend $40 on pizza delivery. Listen to your toddler cry for 30 minutes about how the pizza is all wrong. Watch your toddler take a small bite of crust. Google 'can anger give you a heart attack?' Start the bedtime routine.").

Laditan's wildly funny voice has attracted hundreds of thousands of fans of Honest Toddler on social media; here she speaks parent to tired parent, easing the pains and challenges of raising toddlers with a hefty dose of adult humor and wit.

The PERFECT depiction of what I'm going thru now!

This book described, to the "T" what I'm going thru with my almost 3 year old "asshole". However, I must say, even if I did not have any children, I would find this book hilarious anyway. The writer reminds me of myself and the things I say all the time, but I'm constantly judged for. It's refreshing to read someone's experience and know that I'm NOT alone.

Anyone who has a toddler currently or not too long ago can relate to this. It's laugh out loud funny and doesn't take itself too seriously. Highly recommended!

laugh out loud

This book gave a funny realistic interpretation of raising a toddler and whereas not everything applied to me I appreciate that I'm not the only mommy who feels overwhelmed at times.

New Parents should listen or read this.

This book is a great source to get your emotional strength up. It explains why children do what they do and why to understand why to have patience.

Fantastic

Bunmi laditan hits the nail on the head with this book. It really reflects the frustrations I feel with my toddler. I listen to this when I’m having a particularly bad day with my toddler and it always cheers me up to know I am not alone in this experience.
