You Have to F**king Eat

You Have to F**king Eat

Adam Mansbach and Owen Brozman

From the author of the international bestseller Go the Fuck to Sleep comes a book about the other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal.

You probably shouldn’t read it to your children.
