There is something so appealing about reading stories from someone else’s parenting experiences. (Maybe because misery loves company?) Even though there is not usually much useful information to be gained from reading about another parent’s trials and tribulations, it’s just so comforting in its familiarity. We all know what it’s like to be sleep deprived, spit-up on, and bossed around by a 3 foot dictator.
Despite all that, only a parent can understand the unimaginable, heartbreaking love a parent has for their child. I feel like parenting experiences can be so universal, reading about them reminds me of the solidarity I feel with parents everywhere. Often humorous, sometimes poignant, always relatable, I love biographical parenting books. I don’t spend a lot of time reading parental memoirs, but whenever I do, I almost always enjoy the experience so much that I plan to read them more often.
