Calling all moms on the verge of a “green mom nervous breakdown”: Paige Wolfe, the author of Spit That Out!: The Overly Informed Parent’s Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt, is here to straighten us out. This book will make you feel less neurotic and more normal-what mom doesn’t want that?
Paige takes us on a journey to sanity with hard and fast facts sprinkled with humor. She is a new mother herself, dedicated to living an eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle. She knows that with the constant stream of ever-changing information on greening your lifestyle, it is hard to know where to turn. Spit That Out! holds our hands and takes us there by turning to experts, real moms, authors, actresses and comedians who help us sort through it all and stay on a reasonable path without losing our minds.
Each chapter is filled with a practical, common sense approach to issues that we are all too familiar with- topics ranging from “Managing a Clean, Green Family Diet”, “Is There a Way to Ease Eco-Anxiety” to “Can a Treehugging Kid Still Watch the Wiggles”? The book is packed with hints, tips, guidance and validation. It teaches us and reminds us that we are only human and we can’t possibly do it all.
At the end of each chapter is a recap entitled “Green Mom Sanity Tips”, laid out in a simple, easy to digest format. Websites, products and tips galore are there for the taking.
This book is for all moms; it doesn’t matter if you’re a crunchy, Birkenstock wearing mommy or a rockin’ stlyin’ mom. This book is for you if you’re desperate to do what’s best for your children and are feeling overwhelmed by the process.
A few more reasons this book rocks:

- The book was printed on 30% recycled FSC paper.
