It probably starts already in pregnancy when we are told that stress is bad for the baby, and therefore we should just stop stressing right now (ready, set, go!)or when we receive other solicited and unsolicited parenting advice we seem to often get from fellow mothers, people at grocery stores, our own mothers, our mothers-in-law, you name it. In the era of Facebook and information overload we seem to be surrounded by "good advice" that's often contradictory (let your child cry-it-out, don't let your child cry-it-out, etc.), by perfect moms (just log in to Facebook...), and by people who always want to tell us how to be better moms. What we don't hear nearly enough is that our children will be alright regardless of the fact that we make small mistakes sometimes (because we all make mistakes sometimes); that we can cut ourselves some slack. Wouldn't it be nice to finally tell moms that they don't need to be so tough on themselves? That there isn't just one perfect way to be a good mom?! I think it would!
However, this book doesn't do it. Instead it tells you exactly this, how to be a "good mom" which would be fine if it were a topic of another book.Read more ›
Carlson does a great job of breaking down the worry-minimizing process into small, manageable bits, digestible even on a mother's harried and sporadic schedule. In this way it reminds me of Ed Carlson's inspiring I Walked to the Moon and Almost Everybody Waved: The Curiously Inspiring Adventures of a Free Spirit Who Changed Lives. So readers can accomplish major change in their own lives (and their families') - without stressing over the process.
Highly recommended for busy and overwhelmed mothers, or for anyone weighed down with major responsibilities who wants to live a life that's truer, more honest and more fulfilling.
My favorite part of the book was the brevity of the chapters. It seems like a massive book as you begin it, and you might have concerns that you might not be able to finish it. The good news is that each chapter is approximately 2-4 pages long, and I found that when I broke it down chapter by chapter. In this fashion, I did not feel overwhelmed, and I was able to complete the book ina relatively short time.
I felt that the author was comprehensive inher approach and compassionate in her delivery. I sometimes felt that she did not take her own advice. Some of the chapters could easily put a mom on a guilt trip if they were to put into practice some of her strategies. Some of the things she emphasized I felt were overemphasized and too rigid such as healthy eating, green living, etc. But thankfully most of the book sought to take pressure off of moms for things that are not as important--super mom complex, body image, personal time and space, etc.
I found this book to be a quick, easy read, and chapters where personal stories were shared truly made the message come alive. I would recommend this book to moms of any age.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
