The six most honest, least insulting parenting books

Whitney Collins is the author of The Hamster Won't Die: A Treasury of Feral Humor and the creator and editor of two humor sites -- errant parent and The Yellow Ham.

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog she tagged the six most honest, least insulting parenting books, including:
The Three-Martini Playdate: A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting, by Christie Mellor

Oh, thank goodness for snarky little tongue-in-cheek books like this. This slim beauty extols the virtues of keeping one’s children out of the way—unless they’re serving hors d’oeuvres and mixing gimlets. It also does a pretty good job of outlining the types of over-achieving parents under-achieving parents best avoid. This is a great one for parents to read when they return from one of those kid’s birthdays parties that makes them question the entire meaning of life.
Read about the other books on the list.
