The Self-Help Books for Kids Moms Really Want

The other day my kids were making me a little nutty.  Make that a lot nutty.  It had been a hell of a week, and I was losing it.  Not drown your sorrows in a glass of wine and a barrel of popcorn kind of losing it, but migraine and sobbing and puking losing it.  

It had really been that bad.

When things calmed down a bit, I talked to some friends, and they recommended books such as How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, and How to Listen So Kids Will Talk.  One in particular, called from Beyond Time Out: From Chaos to Calm was touted by several friends as a paper Anne Sullivan. 

Now of course, I should be reading early and often to make my home more calm and orderly.  To make it more reflective of the love I feel for my family.  And of course, to stop my kids from dancing gleefully around their vanquished mother.  Still, it stinks like a poopy diaper that Hubs and I have to be the ones poring over books to find all the answers.

In a perfect world my kids could do some heavy duty self-help reading to fulfill their part of the bargain.  

If their reading skills were up to the task, and if colorful language mattered not, here are the self-help books for kids I would write in a heartbeat:

So friends, what self-help books would you write for your kids?  


  1. This is great!!!!! Brilliant really!! Yea you!!! xoxo I personally would like the book, How to eat your veggies so you don't make your mother think she is a bad mother!! xo

  2. OMG, Keesha, I LOVE these. Do they come in a boxed set? Is there a series on the benefits of putting dirty clothes where they belong so that stray socks under the couch don't send Mommy to the looney bin?
