5 More Inappropriate Books for New Parents

After reading Babble’s 10 Most Inappropriate Books for New Parents last week, I was inspired to share some inappropriate books of my own.

It seems that there are endless lists of books that you “must read” if you’re going to be the “perfect parent”. ┬áBut, this list isn’t like that. ┬áThank goodness these authors had the forethought to write some books that can give parents a good laugh when they feel like they’re at the end of their parenting rope.

Because, while all parents love their children and really do want the best for them, sometimes you’ve just gotta take a little break and laugh for sanity’s sake.
