Motherhood: The Tribe, 10 June 2016
This review is from: Karmic Kids: The Story of Parenting Nobody Told You (Paperback)
So here’s the deal about motherhood — it doesn’t come with a handbook or manual. Those of us in ‘The Tribe’, we know that. But what makes this crazy roller-coaster ride more bearable is the fact that you’re not in it alone. Of course the Elders of the Tribe are more than ready with reams of advice and barrels of instructions, and while their wisdom is something which we’re grateful for, I often find the journey less daunting when I turn to my peers. And Kiran Manral’s “Karmic Kids” falls into that category. It’s gratifying to know that I’m not alone in facing the latest surprise that my boys throw at me. This book, peppered with not just Kiran’s stories about her and her delightful boy, but stories shared by her friends as well, is a must read for any woman who is a new entrant to or is contemplating a lifelong membership to The Tribe. And for those of us already eyeball deep in it, it’s a bear hug of solidarity from other mothers.
