Jane Seymour, O.B.E. Actress, artist, author, mother What an incredible resource, for new and experienced moms! With tips for single mothers, working mothers, mothers of special needs children, and yes, mothers of twins, The Mom Book has something for every mother.

Kathy Peel Author and founder of Family Manager Inc. The Mom Book is an excellent resource for every family manager. It's full of practical, tried-and-true information from highly qualified experts moms across America. I highly recommend it.

Mimi Doe Author of Busy But Balanced and 10 Principles For Spiritual Parenting Stacy DeBroff has given moms the ultimate resource book for parenting. Gathered within The Mom Book are hundreds of tried and true tips from the experienced wisdom of other moms. This is a must have book--a true masterpiece. Moms everywhere are saying 'Thank you Stacy...you are the tip goddess.'I love this book!!

Jennifer Moses Author of Food and Whine I wish I had had The Mom Book when my own children were young---I would have kept it on my bedside table, right next to Dr. Spock and whatever novel I still hadn't had a chance to read, because who the hell has a chance to read when all you do is nurse and change diapers? But The Mom Book would have provided solace for my soul, as well as practical, upbeat, usable advice not only on all the basics, but also on every other thing I could possibly have conceived of in the motherhood department. It's an indispensable, soup-to-nuts guide for the modern mother, conveyed with the straightforward warmth of your best friend. The Mom Book is so good I'd almost be willing to go for yet one more bundle of joy.

Neale S. Godfrey Author of Mom, Inc. and Money Doesn't Grow on Trees What a great book! It's chock-full of easy-to-read tips from parents. The book empowers you to learn from moms like you who have been there, done it, and gotten the 'I'm trying to be a supermom' T-shirt. A must for all who are and about to be moms. It's an easy reference book that should be kept on your night table.

Publishers Weekly DeBroff, founder and president of the online community Mom Central, knows the day-to-day maternal routine. In this comprehensive guide, she offers commonsense hints on raising kids...in a straightforward, encouraging style. Her text is accompanied by suggestions from Mom Central contributors, covering everything from how to dress a toddler who wants to wear his pajamas to school to dealing with an older child's jealousy of a new sibling. A solid addition to a parenting bookshelf."

The Larry Silver Radio Show As any parent will tell you, there's no more difficult or rewarding job than raising children. And they don't come with bundles of instructions. The Mom Book is the most comprehensive book on child care since Dr. Benjamin Spock put pen to paper.

This book is almost 700 pages long and it covers it ALL! And the Index makes it easy to find things. Plus you find you're not the only person who has problems with breastfeeding, teacher's conferences, Sleepovers, Whatever... The section I personally found most helpful was on Home pool (we don't have one, but my parents do, and we had to make some adjustments, which I wouldn't have known if I hadn't read the book). I love the moms' comments. These are people who have been there... This is real life advice from real mom...if you only take ten things to heart, it's well worth the price. Very HIGHLY recommended.

I have been a DeBroff fan ever since her first organizer for moms came out a few years ago and her new book brings us more great ideas consolidated into one book! I am an experienced and very busy mother of three, with a husband who is never at home and I have yet to find a topic Ms. DeBroff investigates without coming up with some new tricks to try. To Disappointed, who gave the two star review, I've BEEN there -- with two kids in diapers and a dog who needed a diaper, worked too hard and been super organized and still can't do it all -- DON'T BLAME IT ON THE BOOK -- you need some girlfriend time, or just chat with some other moms while you have the kids with you if you can't arrange to go out alone.
THIS BOOK WILL BE A GREAT HELP TO MOMS EVERYWHERE, ..., MAKE IT A COFFEE TABLE BOOK FOR THE Moms of the Under 12 set.

Format: Paperback
As a mom of two young kids, I spend most of my time racing around trying to keep our house from looking as if it were hit by a cyclone, convincing my youngest to expand her tastes beyond spaghetti or macaroni and cheese, and breaking up the beginning of raging sibling fights over everything from toys to who picks the next video to watch. It's exhausting, and hard to believe that life at home could be so much harder than my days at the office. A number of good friends recommended the Mom Book to me, and then I heard the author on the radio. I love being able to grab the Mom Book and come up at a glance with great ideas such as temporary toy jail above the TV for all the toys being fought over, a "no-fault" policy that involves both kids taking a breather as a way to curtail sibling fights, or having a "who can crunch the carrot the loudest?" contest as a sneaky way to get my daughter to munch on a vegetable. This book gets my enthusiastic "Mom in the trenches" thumbs up.

Satcy DeBroff has written another great book for us moms looking for insider advice to make our lives as parents easier. I also get her biweekly newsletter full of tips that she sends our from [her website]. I love the clever ideas she offers up: everything from keeping a red wash cloth by your first aid kit so that you child doesn't freak out at the sight of blood to feeding your kids popsicles in the tub so you can just wash away all that blue or orange mess. I'm having such fun through this packed book getting great ideas.

As one of the hundreds of contributing moms in this book, I'm proud to present this review. The Mom Book is a compilation of tips from mothers, neatly arranged and expanded upon by author Stacy DeBroff. Topics covered range from Feeding your Children, to Getting (and staying) Organized, to Memories and Celebrations... and more in between. Whether the solutions offered are common sensical (Getting Organized: If you don't have a hall closet, set aside a place for shoes, coats, hats, and umbrellas near the front door. Without somewhere convenient to go, they'll wind up on chairs or on the floor.) or clever-as-can-be (Medical: numb the area of a splinter with teething medication prior to attempting to work it out), and whether the issue is day-to-day living (Homework) or life-changing (Divorce), the book offers insight useful to all moms. The scope of subject matter and variety of contributor experience result in a well- rounded book that sometimes contradicts itself... which seems OK, even expected, in this context. I'd call this book a deeply researched, personal, directory of tips and insights well worth keeping *and* passing along to *every* mom of growing children, on *any* occasion!

The Mom Book is an incredibly comprehensive guide to the tips and tricks of keeping a modern day family running smoothly. Think of this book as a family "User's Guide". The interviews and tips from a variety of real Mom's are priceless and the warmth and humor kept me reading for hours. The sheer amount of information makes this a book that I will refer to time and time again as the needs (and size) of my family change. I wish this was available before I started my family so that I would have been better prepared for all of the challenges!
