MOB Rule : Lessons Learned by a Mother Of Boys Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


You know you've joined the MOB when you hear...'My, are they all yours?' 'Bless you!' (Occasionally) 'Poor you!' (Frequently) 'Lucky you!' (Once) And of course, the ultimate: 'So ...are you going for a girl?' Hannah Evans has three small boys.

In her world, farting is so much more interesting than phonics, dam-building trumps damsels in distress any day and, astonishingly, she now instinctively knows the difference between a Frontloader and a JCB.

It's a world of mud - and just occasionally blood - sweat and tears.

It is also a world of indescribable joy. MOB Rule is the funny, honest and eye-opening account of Hannah's experiences as a Mother of Boys.

Supplemented by recipes, quizzes, mnemonics and mysteries, it is the indispensible book for anyone who finds themselves adrift on a sea of testosterone, wondering when the lifeboat is going to show up.

You may be outnumbered, your face may be frazzled and your toe-nails black and bare, but know that, far from being alone, you're part of a very special club.

Welcome to ...the MOB!

Review by
Mob Rule is a hilarious look at what it is like to raise a bunch of boys. Told as a series of tales about the author's family instead of the usual dry self-help formula, this book will have you laughing long and loud. Anybody who has ever mothered boys will recognize the situations, Evans relates, but even mothers of girls will find some helpful advice (and not a few chuckles) within the pages of this antidote to the often unhelpful parenting manual.
