From trips to self-centered therapists, to mothers experimenting with Ritalin, to the harsh reality of school calls (no good can come from them), Shut Up About . . Your Perfect Kid! bravely ventures where other books haven't, featuring humorous, heartwarming stories from a wide range of parents of "imperfect" children. Narrated by two "imperfect" sisters and mothers of children with Asperger's syndrome and bipolar disorder, the book features a compilation of stories that demonstrate the sheer humor and absurdity of raising imperfect children in a perfection-preoccupied world. It will have virtually any parent laughing out loud and appreciating the gifts and beauty that every child has to offer (yes, even imperfect ones).

From the Back Cover:

Us. vs. Them Battle: "It's hard to hear how good their kid is on the baseball field when yours would rather catch real flies."

Medication: "We've met parents who feel guilty for putting their kids on meds...for not putting their kids on meds...even for taking their kids' meds."

Food: "Yes, my daughter would like a Happy Meal. Please hold the meal and she'll be happy."

Marriage: "You can remember the name of Beaver Cleaver's first-grade teacher, but you can't remember to put your son on the bus?"

Sports: "Do we have to follow the ball Mom? It's more fun following a bee."

Everyday life: "Sorry, I missed the bus, Mom. I was practicing my funny faces in the mirror."

From the Inside Flap:

From trips to self-centered therapists, to mothers experimenting with Ritalin, to the harsh reality of school calls (no good can come from them), Shut Up About. . . Your Perfect Kid! bravely ventures where other books haven't, featuring humorous, heartwarming stories from a wide range of parents of "imperfect" children.
