One thought on “The Lunch-Box Chronicles: Notes from the Parenting Underground

  1. Sonya Feher

    The writing is funny and descriptive and, not surprisingly, reads like NPR commentary Stand out essays for me were Our Bodies, Their Selves about breastfeeding, nudity, and how children getting older changes the physical and visual relationship between mother and child Sex and Drugs and Good Advice explores how parents can share the experience of who they were and what they ve done while teaching kids what s safe do you reveal everything What s hypocritical as a message vs information too mature [...]

    This book was a quick filler while I was waiting to get another book It was perfect for that and even better than I was expecting it to be This is a light, humorous and quick book about parenting from the perspective of a widowed mother Her story was touching and at times shocking, which was a surprising delight This isn t a run of the mill suburban mom She has some stories to tell, but is only able to touch on them in this book Maybe she has time to get into it all in another book

  3. Laurie

    Single parents or those with blended families Winik, widowed mother of two sons, dates a man with two daughters might like reading this book, but otherwise I don t think it stands out from the pack too much There are also several points in this book that are not at all clear if you haven t read Winik s earlier memoirs I haven t, had to look up her bio to understand a few things One point of interest is that her boyfriend in this book is Texas food writer Robb Walsh.For humorous parenting memoirs [...]

    This book didnt really hold my attention I was dissapointed the writer didnt at least try to delve deeper into some of her actions or some of the subjects She skirts by the deeper meaning of when she smacks her child, or when she starts dating a new man I hate not finishing a book I have started, but didnt feel any satisfied after I had completed the book.Would I reccomend it Probably not, theres so much other far superior books that actually have some depth.

  5. Tracy O

    This is one of the only books I ve ever read by a real single parent and, by that I mean someone who s parenting without another parent not someone who is divorced or separated It certainly doesn t stop at tales of being a single parent, but I did appreciate that.These are short pieces and the writing is honest, interesting, funny and liberal.

  6. Heather

    Part of my Random Reading Challenge.This book made me realize that when I want to scream and strangle my kids, I m not alone Other mothers feel that same way, and have even tougher struggles than I do.This book had many insightful pages, and quotes about raising children, marriage, death, life, and beyond It really was a lot of fun.

  7. Ruth

    Some honest glimpses into parenting nightmares, lots of recognition for the paradoxical boxes that we get ourselves into, the joy and the profound boredome, all that good stuff And she s funny as hell.

  8. Mary Robinson

    Loved Marion Winik s wild story and her writing candid, funny and smart Insightful about raising, loving and being driven crazy by kids and a very interesting life story so far.

  9. Karen

    this is the first book i read by her, and enjoyed it whether you have small children or grown ones, you may like this.

  10. Sheena Gossett

    I suck at being a parent But apparently there are others just like me This book, though 20 years old is so relatable.
