For real mums at their wits' end, this grown-up activity book is perfect for all mothers in a bad mood.

Let's face it: motherhood gives you SO many reasons for bad moods. From stretch marks to toddler rage and teenage sulking - it's as if your little (or not so little) darlings seem to have been put on this earth just to drive you up the wall. With The Little Book of Bad Moods for Mothers, you can finally drop the pretence of holding it together and simply explode. Without hurting anyone. Here are just some of the cathartic activities:

What UNWANTED advice have you been given about being a parent? Fill out the answers!

Draw yourself BEFORE AND AFTER pregnancy. Be very realistic.

What are the MOST IRRITATING characteristics that your child has inherited from your partner? A chance to secretly moan about your partner too!

What would you REALLY like to say to your child? Resist the urge! Write it down instead.

What is the most IDIOTIC TEEN TREND you have witnessed? Be honest...

So, if you have to stop yourself screaming louder than your crying infant or throwing food back at your terrible toddler, remember that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This book is for you.
