Candid, touching and very, very funny, Confessions of a Bad Mother: The Teenage Years offers hope to despairing and exhausted parents everywhere. Listen and discover that your teenager is not the enemy after all.

When you’re pregnant you think: ‘I’m having a baby’, not a person who will eventually catch trains by themselves, share a fridge with ten strangers, go to a festival in Croatia without succumbing to a drug overdose and one day, bring you a gin and tonic when your mother is dying. We imagine the teenage years as a sort of domestic meteor strike, when our dear, sweet child, hitherto so trusting and mild, is suddenly replaced by a sarcastic know-it-all who isn’t interested in the wisdom we have to pass on. But with great honesty and refreshingly bracing wit, Stephanie Calman shows that adolescence in fact begins much earlier, around the age of seven. And having nurtured them through every stage of development, from walking to school by themselves to their first all-night party, you find yourself alone – bereaved even – as they skip off to university without a second glance.

‘Entertaining … bites back on behalf of all women who disobey the perfect-mummy manuals and muddle through in their own way.’
YOU Magazine

‘Plenty to make parents laugh out loud with recognition … one to read with a large glass of wine once all the little monsters are tucked up in bed.’
Sunday Express

‘A no-holds-barred look at mothering and it’s all the better for it … tells it like it is.’
