My Mother Wears Combat Boots
For punk parents and beyond comes Jessica Mills' parenting guide, My Mother Wears Combat Boots. Culled from her magazine column of the same name (in Maximum Rock N Roll) the content is warm and engaging, even for non-parents. It's part memoir, part how-to, and follows Jessica's trials and triumphs as she raises her daughter Emma Joy into an energetic 5 year old. The book covers topics including: pregnancy, birthing, going back to work, breast-feeding, the family bed, cursing, gender coding, first foods, traveling with kids and a whole lot more.
