Adam Mansbach, author Of ‘Go The F*** To Sleep,’ discusses his new book on mealtime with kids called “You Have to Fu**king Eat.”

“You Have to F**king Eat” covers another major source of frustration for parents — trying to get your kids to eat a good meal. As Mansbach states in the official book announcement, “There’s been plenty of enthusiasm for a sequel over the years (and plenty of suggestions!) but I always said I’d only do one if it rang true to me—if I felt like I could imbue it with the same kind of honesty, love, and frustration as the first book. And eating is the other universal source of parental anxiety, a battle of wills just as pitched as sleep can be. From my own experiences and plenty of conversations with other parents, it seemed like a topic folks could use a laugh and a bit of catharsis about.”
