This book hit home with me in so many ways (Catholicism, Parenting, Friendship, etc.....) and I found myself smiling,shaking my head in agreement, and laughing hysterically as I read. I'll be keeping this one for my library and passing other copies to family and friends.

This book was a complete waste of my time and money. I have never review a book before, but I feel a sense of responsibility to knock this book down a few notches from its undeserved 5 star rating so that others don't get tricked into buying this book, the way I was. I was initially excited to read this book because I thought it was going to be funny and full of encouragement for moms who are tired of living up to expectations to be The Perfect Mother. It was neither. The most disturbing part about the book is that the author in fact WANTS to be perceived as The Perfect Mother but does not want to put in the time and effort it takes to achieve this so-called status. So instead, she lies, fakes, and cheats her way to making herself look better than she really is. Furthermore, the author admits that she knows her behavior is wrong, but she justifies it by claiming that she is doing it for the good of her children. Buyer, beware.

The White Trash Mom Handbook is the perfect companion piece to all those Dr. Sears books that will make you think that you will probably break your child before age one. It's that friend everyone needs that tells you that you aren't alone in faking a home-made cake for the bake sale by buying one store-bought and messily applying frosting-in-a-can.

It's a good thing.

Perfect gift.

After receiving a review copy of this book, I hunted Michelle down and became her friend.

Why? She's the smartest lady ever.

If you think navigating the PTA is something you can do alone, you are sadly mistaken. This is the perfect book for every mom who is sending their first child to kindergarten. I give it as a gift all the time.

This book is the author's view on parenting. But she apparently figured no one would buy that so she wanted a controversial title. Hence "white trash." The subtitle includes "embrace your inner trailerpark."

She admits on page xii the book has nothing to do with white trash or trailer parks. She just used this, and I quote, as a "smart-ass name."

Maybe "The Official Preppy Handbook" should have been about lumberjacks. Ms. Birnbach, hang your head in shame for actually writing about preppies!

Apparently honesty is not important in Ms. Lamar's "philosophy of parenting." But ripping off readers is OK.
