'The flowers doze down in the valleys and high up in the rugged mountains. Please stop fucking around and go to sleep ... 'This is just one of the lines in the book that is being sold more than French fries in America. Its author, Adam Mansbach, channels in his work, plagued with expletives and frustration, his helplessness to get his daughter, just two years old, to sleep at night. What do you think?

Many times we feel, like Mansbach, helpless and frustrated when we cannot get our children to do what they have to do. We have to always be there, nagging them for them to fall asleep, eat all the food, or do all their homework. Some of these moments can be a nightmare for many parents, but from there to turn their anger, their lack of patience and their dislikes into a book, entitled "Go the fuck to sleep" (Get the fuck out of sleep), and on top of such a rude way, it does not seem right to me, despite the enormous success it is having: More than 300 thousand copies sold!

The most incredible thing is that it all started when Mansbach wrote one of the rhymes in his book on Facebook. His poetry began to spread in such a way on the Internet that the requests for him to continue creating and writing did not take long to multiply. And, far from moralism, I ask myself: Who could be interested in some verses that only reveal the incapacity and incompetence of a father who begins to spit out his frustrations in such an uncontrolled way? The publisher has defended itself by informing that this is not a book for children, but for adults. Of course not.

Proponents of the book say on Facebook that parents lie about their parenting abilities and that Mansbach has only been honest with himself in releasing the pressure and exhaustion he feels to get his daughter to bed. All of us, on occasion, have lost patience with our children, but from there to vent the lack of control and all the anger that one may feel, with insults and offenses, it does not seem the best thing to do, especially when it comes to children . Let's see what the reaction of Spanish-speaking parents will be when the book is translated into Spanish. Will they buy it? What do you think?

    I would not say using this approach and logic, you can come to such delirium. So, it's not worth it, it's not worth it ... But, in general, thanks, it's really interesting and there is something to think about. All happy holidays and more bright ideas in NG !!!!! Let's light up the 31st!
