Shut Up About . . Your Perfect Kid! is a delightful compilation of anecdotes from the real lives of sisters who parent their children with unconditional humor and do so with resounding success. Their ability to make the ordinary family experience one of extraordinary poignancy, by honoring the humanity in each of their special children, is a blessing for all parents who struggle with their own family issues of acceptance, expectation, and authority... Above and beyond the contagious humor within this book is the caveat that it contains for all of us: open your eyes to the gifts that each and every one of us bear -- young or old, large or small, abled, or challenged -- you may miss the most brilliant gems in life if you merely scan the surface of human existence. --Sally McCue, LISCW
Shut Up About . . Your Perfect Kid! has it all; humor, practical advice and inspiration. Most of all, it is a heartfelt outpouring of love from two mothers with special children who discovered themselves along the way. Read this book and you, too, will discover yourself. --John Alexandrov, best-selling author of Your Spiritual Gold Mind, Affirmations of Wealth, and The Money Chi
