Atlanta Parenting Columnist Publishes Book of Award-Winning Humor Columns

Jan Butsch has been called \"the funniest Mom in America\" and her first book, Just A Stage, was just published by Schroder Media.

    / - December 2, 2004 -- "All the world's a stage, but when will they grow out of this one?"

This new book is a collection of humorous stories about every stage of children's lives, with tips to help you laugh, love and live through every one. Author Jan Butsch is an award-winning Atlanta journalist who has been called “the funniest mom in America.” ISBN # 0976228807

Based on her columns that were published in Atlanta Intown, Atlanta Buckhead and The Story newspapers, the book also includes tips for surviving a spend-the-night party, handling battling siblings, making a better peanut butter sandwich and talking with your teen. Anyone with kids, or anyone who has been around children will love this book. Join Jan on the journey – one that takes you from epidurals to driver's licenses, with visits to Chuck E. Cheese, Brownie camp-outs and road trips in between.

Chris Schroder, founder and former publisher of Atlanta Intown and Atlanta Buckhead and current president of Schroder PR has started a book division called Schroder Media and is publishing the book. It is available at and at

“It would be great if all of my patients would read Just a Stage. I can help them keep their children healthy, and reading Jan's book can help them relax about the demands of raising children, laugh about the insanity that can often accompanies it, offer them tips for every phase of their children's lives and help them enjoy and cherish each and every stage,” said pediatrician Dr. Thomas Calk.

“If you're exasperated and exhausted from trying to understand the male psyche, juggling your life around a carpool schedule or simply because you can't find five minutes of 'me' time, this collection of lighthearted readings will give your soul a much-needed break. Pour yourself a nice glass of red wine and start turning pages. You deserve it. And you won't regret it - unlike your decision to volunteer for extra carpool duty or let your kids adopt that third kitten,” said Stephanie Oswald, editor-in-chief of travelgirl magazine.

“All parents should read this book - it gives you hope and lets you know you're not alone!” said Judy Bass, mom of two.
