Book Review – Mother Knows Best?

The Mommy was checking out a book for a guest review, but she got swamped with work so I said I would help her out. The book in question is Sue Castle’s 2012 non-fiction work “Mother Knows Best? The Truth About Mom’s Well-Meaning (But Not Always Accurate) Advice.” This fun little book features short chapters drilling down on whether all that advice (nagging) you got from mom is really true or bunk. Examples of motherly advice include, an apple a day keeps the doctor away (sadly, not true) and put butter on a burn right away (wicked not true unless you are taking about chicken). The majority of topics center on health and babies, but also includes information on food and general topics. Of course no advice debunking book would be complete without a mention of what happens if you swim right after eating and with all Beyond the Car Seat reviews I won’t spoil the ending to that one.
