Worry with Mother 101 Neuroses for the Modern Mama

LoveReading View on Worry with Mother 101 Neuroses for the Modern Mama

Beautifully illustrated by renowned cartoonist Dorrance, this book is a welcome slice of light relief from all the fretting mums are expected to do these days.

Francesca Hornak has taken a light-hearted, humorous look at the concerns and worries of the modern mother. You know, those kind of thoughts that just pop in to your head (usually at 3 in the morning whilst trying to grab a few precious moments sleep) and make you feel ever so slightly crazy.  Well fear not as there is an anecdote for everyone within the pages of this book. Relax in the knowledge that your craziness is most definitely shared and enjoy a giggle as you consider everything from the ludicrously long list of hospital bag labour ‘essentials’ to late night stakeouts awaiting the return of teens.  Not only will this make you smile (and possibly occasionally grimace) but it will also help bring a little perspective to those moments when you feel like the worst parent ever.   A wonderful gift for all mothers old or new, expectant or even for the just plain exhausted. 


Worry with Mother 101 Neuroses for the Modern Mama Synopsis

Anyone who has ever given birth knows that a mother's worrying is never done. Parenting books give wildly contradictory advice, late-night Googling induces blind panic, and, in today's ultra-competitive environment, other parents just make you feel worse. This hilarious book, by first-time mother and Sunday Times columnist Francesca Hornak, captures perfectly the madness of modern parenting, with 101 worries all mums will have experienced themselves, on topics including food-throwing toddlers, technology-addicted teenagers, and an imaginary friend called Neil.
