Yes, there are times when it’s appropriate to reason with your child, to patiently and eloquently explain why he or she needs to do as you ask. You might present convincing arguments like “Because it makes you strong”; “Because it will keep you safe”; “Because it’s good for you”; “Because it’s bad for you.” But there are times when the only thing that really makes sense is . . . “Because I said so!!” This book is a hilarious, honest romp through motherhood—the joys, the sleeplessness, the frazzled days, the unending carpooling, the in-house refereeing, the dieting (yeah, right), the worrying—and did we say, the joy? Here’s what some of that joy looks like—with excerpts straight from the book: • I tried to do the Buns of Steel video, but quickly realized that it wasn’t intended for people who have buns of pudding. • I felt like my head might explode. I kind of hoped it would so I could take a nice, peaceful ambulance ride out of there. • I was a little at a loss. I mean, those parenting books don’t tell you how to break up a fight over an imaginary friend. • Moms aren’t allowed to get sick more than one day a year. Single moms aren’t allowed to get sick ever. • Before you have children you can’t imagine yourself saying things like “Don’t put chocolate milk in your pants,” “Take the hot dog out of your nose,” or “Because I said so!” If you’re a mom-to-be or a mom in the trenches, you’ll love knowing that you’re not the only one out there who sometimes just figures it out as you go along—and sometimes can’t figure it out at all. But in the end, Dawn has these words of encouragement just for you: “Enjoy this time. Even when they make you crazy, these are the best days of your life.” And they really are, aren’t they?

Kesa Sapiro had to grow up fast. With her parents gone and a little sister to protect, Kesa has spent over a decade of her life trying to keep a roof over their heads. She’s learned the hard way that love is a luxury and that the price is way too high. When her sister Josie announces she wants to marry a boy she’s known for less than a month, Kesa immediately forbids it. Shannon Dealan is floored when her son-by-choice says he wants to get married to a girl he’s just met. Shannon has real reason to scrutinize any strangers who come into Paz’s life. She’s not about to let him do anything stupid—and that includes believing in love at first sight. She knows too well there’s no such thing. Hoping to soften the objections of their jaded, overbearing elders, Josie and Paz arrange for them to meet and discuss the future like civilized adults…but absolutely nothing goes as planned.

Riding in the car with my mother on a cold winter's night, hearing the directive from my mother to purposefully say a sentence that included a curse word, just so that my mother could know her power over me and also knowing I could not say those words, my words would be nothing more than a whisper. I couldn't bring myself to loudly speak this sentence. As I spoke each word and did not speak the curse word, my mother turned back and hit me in the face, causing my mouth to bleed over my white cotton collar on my only winter coat. "You did not do what I told you! Now repeat what I said!" The second time I repeated the same as the first, without the curse word. Again, my mother turned around and hit me. I knew this would continue until I spoke that word! Her anger was overtaking my mother. In her anger, she shouted again, "You did not do what I told you!" In my tears, I asked, "Why are you doing this?" The loud response was, "Because I said so!" She again directed me to speak the sentence, so in desperation, I spoke the curse word. How do you balance your faith and obey your mother and father? It is such a struggle that I had to overcome. "Because I said so" doesn't provide a child a clear understanding on why a directive is given. I had to overcome and personally make the decision to change my heritage that I would pass down to my children and the next generations. Childhood does not have to be painful. My aim through this book is to provide hope and encouragement to others that have experienced or are experiencing suffering. Know that you can overcome and become the person to your family that you wanted to have as a child. Abuse does not have to continue through the generations. Be encouraged!

Do the words "What's for dinner?" make you cringe? Are you tired of one-word answers from the teenager in the house? These hilarious stories are a laugh-out-loud look at everyday life. From "A construction company...what were we thinking?" to "My Big, Fat Tongue," you won't be able to put this one down. Because I Said So! by comedy author Michelle Hoppe is a look into the ups and downs of raising a family, while attempting to become an author. Take a peek into the family life of the Hoppe clan and discover how Michelle turned everyday life into delightfully funny stories. Michelle was blessed with the ability to view life through rose tinted glasses. Unlike Claire Tomalin, who said "My life was a sort of series of random disasters," Michelle's life, with her twisted sense of humor and a madcap home crew, is more a series of random "by the seat of your pants motherhood". Growing up, Michelle loved to read books by Erma Bombeck; books like If Life is a Bowlful of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits and Motherhood taught her to look for the humor in life. Michelle's favorite Erma quote "When humor goes, there goes civilization!" seemed like a call to action, so this comedy autobiography is her contribution to the continuation of mankind, oops...personkind! This hilarious book contains humor about family life, motherhood, and parenting, and is sure to keep you laughing from beginning to end.

Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So offers a much-needed hilarious first-aid kit for parents of all types.

They know how important good grooming is—especially a certain rogue shape-shifter who is as sexy as he is deadly. Now, if only I could put a leash on my wild teenage son. He’s up to his neck in danger. The stress would kill me if I wasn’t already dead. But my maternal instincts are sill alive and kicking, so no one better mess with my flesh and blood.
