Book Review - Dad Truths: The Good, the Bad, and the Exhausting from the Frontlines of Parenting

About the Book
Dad Truths is your antidote to the aspirational parenting craze; this collection of laugh-out-loud stories and non-advice provides much needed real talk and commiseration for parents everywhere. 

You’ve read every other parenting guide, and you still don’t know whether you’re a good parent. Mike Julianelle, the Brooklyn-based dad and founder of Dad and Buried, is here to tell you exactly what you want to hear—that you’re already great and the kids are the problem. Jokes aside, this book provides the help that every fed-up and exhausted parent needs to survive another day, including short essays, funny illustrations, and jokes on topic such as: 

  • You Can’t Handle the Baby-Proof 
  • We’re All Mad Here—Well, Mostly the Toddler 
  • Stay at Home Dad Trial 
  • Surviving Disney World 
  • The Ultimate Dad Pep Talk 
In this hilarious book, Mike Julianelle will remind you to cut yourself some slack. Parenting is no easy feat and if you’re here, you’re already a pretty great dad.

My Take on the Book
Get ready to laugh, but also learn in this great new book. The book really touches on a ton of topics that every father will relate to as they go through different phases of fatherhood. The book provides a realistic view of parenting and does not hold back the truth, but the author does this in a fun way. If you know a dad, especially one with young kids, this is great book and a great gift!
