Brooklyn Author Spins Off ‘Parenting Confessional’ Tumblr

ParentingConfessionalDNAInfo Brooklyn reporter Nikhita Venugopal has additional details about Parenting Confessional, the “place to share what you wouldn’t dare say to your playgroup.” As the front page of the Tumblr page reminds, the site is a clever, advance way devised by author Julia Fierro and her publisher to drum up buzz for the forthcoming Cutting Teeth:

“It’s hard for me to imagine any parent that doesn’t have a moment of doubt or self-scrutiny,” the author said.

While some posts are funny (“I ate the cookie dough meant for my son’s class party. And then I blamed it on the babysitter”) or inspirational (“I think my body looks better after childbirth. Take that, world!”), others reveal deeper feelings many parents often keep to themselves, Fierro said.

Fierro’s debut novel, about a group of Brooklyn families who gather for a weekend at a beach house in Long Island, arrives May 13, with a launch event following a few days later at Book Court.
