You Really Are a Good Mom
on May 7, 2007
Mothers with children of any age need to read Dr. Dunnewold's book. Based on a sensible approach to mothering, she points out the degree to which many moms (and dads) today get caught up in the competitive parenting trap. Calm and comforting in tone, she gives simple, doable suggestions that will help keep parents from being caught up in the competitive parenting Olympics while showing how to remain true to one's own self. She validates moms who bring their own strengths to parenting while acknowledging we all have our own little "nutty" piece as well. Realistic and reassuring with funny anecdotes and excellent advice, this book is a much needed one for moms today.
