Book Review: It’s A Mom Thing: Kickass Parenting by Sathya Ramaganapathy


Joyful Read on Parenting…

Anecdotes of parenting that mom has to go through with her kids in various topics are discussed in each chapter. The book makes the readers split into humor and at some points makes you concerned – the ideas on how to tackle the problems and tactics used to overcome it.

All’s not lost though. It’s not doom and gloom all the time. There are moments, not all that uncommon, especially as they grow older when they agree to be agreeable. Small pockets of calm when the two settle upon a common activity or a game and proceed to engage with each other. If you haven’t heard a peep from them for more than a couple of hours, they must be up to something. Time to step in.

The above lines from the book are apt on parenting.
