No parent wants their kid to swear. (Disclaimer: This research does  not count those who do not care if their kid swears, or those who  encourage their kid to swear.) Inevitably some kind of profanity is going  to escape when the parent, say, steps on a lego, burns their hand while  cooking, or stubs their toe. The child may not react at the time, but I  100% guarantee the child was listening and will repeat those words at  the worst possible moment. (Disclaimer #2: This research does not  include those whose child was not actually listening, or those who did  not repeat the profanity.) 

This book would be a great gift to new  parents, old parents, or for your parents. Guaranteed laughs abound,  unless they don't laugh.

“S***, D***, F*** and Other Words You  Shouldn’t Say” is an illustrated parent humor book that follows a young  girl as she accidentally learns (and remembers) fun new swear words.  After each accidental swear she overhears the little girl promises she  will not repeat the word. Of course, she keeps a running list of all the exciting words. 

This book has already been written. It has already been illustrated. I just need help turning it into a real tangible hold-in-your-hands book. That's where you come in! Once this campaign is over I hope to be able to sell my book digitally and in paperback form. 

Risks and challenges

I listed receive date for the books as December 2019 as a CYA, but I will order the books as soon as the kickstarter campaign is over... I will send out reward copies of the books as soon as I receive them from the printer.
