‘Bad Parent Lit’

The Wall Street Journal identified the trend, (Bad Parents and Proud of It), but our friends at Shelf Awareness gave it the moniker, ‘Bad Parent Lit.”

Not only are new and forthcoming books part of the trend, but also Web sites (Babble.com’s “Bad Parent” — a compilation of essays from it will be pubbed in the fall) and TV (a new ABC sitcom, “In the Motherhood“).
