Dear Dilvin, you suck at this. Sincerely, Dilvin.

In the frightening world of tiger mums, little emperors and helicopter parenting, can any mother ever be good enough? Dilvin Yasa thinks probably not. In fact, she's pretty sure mothers have been sold a dodgy lot of unrealistic standards, with a good dollop of guilt thrown in.

Dilvin draws extensively and often hilariously on

Bloody awful, full of classist stereotypes and absolutely no useful information. (This 'good enough' mother worries that her friend might judge her for buying Bonds baby clothes. Bonds baby clothes are far too expensive for me to buy!)
If you're rich, employed and enjoy lookingg down on people in lower-income brackets you may enjoy this. If you think parenting is about nuturing and loving, rather than brands and private schools, you might get something out of this. Yuck.

I am really glad I don't know this author in real life. Funny to read but she is also scary, some extreme reactions which is good to read but terrifying. Good to have a mix of experts at end of each chapter but this is extreme parenting.
