To help Mom make it right, this Mother’s Day, the Kraft Mac & Cheese brand is introducing a set of tools to help. The brand has created a film with Melissa Mohr, author of Holy Sh*T: A Brief History of Swearing, on alternative swear words moms can use around the little ones to prevent parenting fails. Additionally Kraft is launching Mother’s Day cards with Fail-Cancelling Earplugs to help shield your kids’ ears in those not-so-motherly moments. And for whatever the earplugs and substitute swears can’t block, there’s always Kraft Mac & Cheese.

We wanted to cut Moms some slack, embrace their imperfections, and remind them that Kraft Mac & Cheese is a guaranteed a win because it’s the taste kids love.”
