Moms know that sometimes, to be a great mom, you have to be "the worst."
Kids know that even when their moms annoy them and make things worse, they mean well and love them.
In this book, Riley shares some of the many ways her Mommy makes things "worse" through her everyday parenting actions.
The book addresses that special (and sometimes tense) relationship between little girls and their mothers from a child's perspective.
Riley's Mommy means well, but these well-intended actions sometimes make life worse.
Parents and kids will see their experiences reflected in this book in Riley's characteristic blend of sardonic humor and direct, honest feedback.
Because Riley is a kid herself, it doesn't moralize, talk down to, or pander to kids, but makes light of, and validates kids' experiences.
