The humorous book of consolation for stressed parents
Let’s be honest: the work involved in raising children is drudgery. Of course parents love their children more than anything in the world. First they stand all night next to the crib – just in case; later they must deal with the foul moods and trashed rooms of their teenagers. Every stage of development brings along with its good and not-so-good times many new, stress-saturated problems. Many mothers and fathers have thus at some time or another pondered, "Would I be better off if I’d never had children?" But to even verbalize such a notion is thoroughly forbidden. Yet thinking about it is allowed – isn’t it?
Eva Gerberding and Evelyn Holst do in fact dare to contemplate this idea, all the while presenting here a humorously consoling and sympathetic companion for parents under pressure. For two things are a part of parenthood: the greatest joy imaginable, and also the greatest possible stress.
