Mom Vs. Dad by Lucy and Tom Riles

 Mom Vs. Dad by Lucy and Tom Riles

The not so serious guide to the stuff we're all fighting about.
While a husband and wife's parenting styles may be worlds apart, they both have the same goal: to raise happy kids who feel unconditionally loved. Mom vs. Dad is packed with sidesplitting and vulnerable personal essays from the trenches of parenthood. In this book, Lucy and Tom Riles tackle relatable topics such as:
Is bringing a toaster oven to a 5-star resort tacky or genius?
Is it appropriate to lick your plate clean at a restaurant?
Does the expiration date on food really matter?

Illustrations of family life will also be included in this intimate and inspiring narrative about the challenges and triumphs of raising children. Mom vs. Dad is the perfect gift for anyone who needs a relatable couple to guide them through some of the toughest (and funniest) issues parents face today.

My Thoughts:

Mom Vs. Dad by Lucy and Tom Riles is a book about the things that couples fight over in marriage with raising a family. Most of the time, it isn't the big things, but rather the smaller ones such as paying for a babysitter, sharing food, how should the toilet paper hang, etc. This book actually makes those things seem very light and comical when you read it. 

Mom Vs. Dad is a book that I believe is meant to be light hearted, while looking at the things that really bother couples in marriage. This book engages the reader in how they can communicate with their spouse in a kind, unattacking way. It may also help the reader to see that the issues that had been bothering them about their spouse isn't a big deal. Either way, this book is perfect for any married couple with a family working through life together.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions in this review are mine. #sponsoredbyfaithwords
