Worry with Mother: 101 Neuroses for the Modern Mama

By Francesca Hornak

This hilarious book 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.

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. 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.
