Dear Dilvin, you suck at this. Sincerely, Dilvin.

In the frightening world of tiger mums, little emperors and helicopter parenting, can any mother ever be good enough? Dilvin Yasa thinks probably not. In fact, she's pretty sure mothers have been sold a dodgy lot of unrealistic standards, with a good dollop of guilt thrown in.

Dilvin draws extensively and often hilariously on her own experiences as a new mother, but also consults the experts. Each chapter, be it on competitive parenting, post-natal depression or returning to work, contains relevant advice from a professional in the field.

Refreshingly candid, Dilvin sheds light on the unexpected challenges of parenting, and never shies from a tough question: Is it okay to take time out from your family? (yes); Should you give your child a 'unique' name? (dubious); and, Is it okay to tell your child that cat heaven is on the moon? (maybe not).

Good Enough shares a journey that is both universal and deeply personal. With warmth, wit and wicked humour, Dilvin Yasa details the embarrassing failings, unexpected triumphs and dizzying and delightful in-betweens of modern-day motherhood.

    Dilvin Yasa has written a down to earth parenting guide here asking some of the questions that every mother wants to know about bringing up their child like protecting kids from allergies, child care, bottle feeding, post natal depression etc. Each chapter has relevant advice from a professional in the field. Its written in a really chatty and helpful way that you can dip in and out of. Thoroughly recommended!
