Parenting is harder than you think, but most parents are too busy to notice. Nothing can prepare you for what lies ahead: you`ll lose sleep and gain weight; you won`t have a proper day off for years; you`ll become slovenly in how you dress and you`ll find the years are slipping away faster than ever. But the amazing thing is, whatever your children do to you, you`ll love them just the same. The Ups and Downs of Being a Parent is a gift book on the joys of parenthood, featuring more than 120 brilliant cartoons drawn by Private Eye`s Tony Husband. It`ll help you see where everybody`s going wrong.
