My Mom is the Worst: A Toddler’s Perspective on Parenting

Did you ruin your child’s life today?

Made them wear underwear? You’re the worst.
Made them go to the doctor? You’re the worst.
Hugged them too tightly? YOU ARE THE WORST.

My Mom is the Worst by J K CoyIt’s one of those days for this mama and her munchkin.

No matter how much this mom tries to show her child she cares, her little one STILL thinks she is THE WORST!


And guess what?!  Being young can feel just as DIFFICULT.

Your child is sure to find this tale of what parents DO TO THEIR KIDS extremely funny, as they will surely relate to the everyday situations.

Never fear, parents! This is a fun read for you, too.  

There is a loving “hidden message” bolded within the text JUST FOR YOU.  

This slightly sarcastic tale will make your little ones feel heard, while giving you both a much needed laugh.  The story is written from your child’s perspective of what it feels like to be “cared for” All. Day. Long.

What we do in love, children can perceive differently in their imaginations.

Who is right, the Mama or the Munchkin?
