From the Back Cover
Do blogs, books, magazines, and well-meaning women in your life have you questioning your mothering intuition? Jean Blackmer is here to tell you that you are the best mom for your children--and you have what it takes to raise them.
With personal stories from real moms and proven, practical advice, MomSense helps you honestly assess your skills, embrace your mothering instincts, and develop your own unique mothering style. Rather than pushing one "right" way to be a mom, this hope-filled book shows you that you can have contentment, joy, and confidence in your role as Mom.
