Editorial Reviews

Review

...a must read for parents. Kudos to her for her hard work! -- Vanderbilt University Professor/Dr. Keith Dewey

...this book should be in every library, childcare center, home and school. Lynn has included the voices of fathers! -- Author, K.C. Where's Daddy?

As a working mom with 5 kids, it's a must have! -- Lisa Roberts, author, The Entrepreneurial Parent

I love Mommy-CEO because Jodie has the right idea to make the connection between moms and leadership roles. -- Cassandra Walker, author, Girl Power Series, radio and TV personality

Jodie made me feel validated and not so alone in raising my children. Her tips are right on target! -- Tammy Harrison, Creative Representative for Home-Based Working Moms (HBWM.com)

Parenting tips covering tots to teens, Jodie shares practical insights oh how to conquer everyday challenges. -- Kristie Tamsevicius, author, I Love My Life!

This book is not just for parents. The 5 Golden Rules apply towards challenges in today's world with all folks. -- High School Teacher and Professional Speaker, R. Wilson

From the Publisher

Validating moms as the real CEOs in everyday life has never been so clear. Mommy-CEO will not only enhance leadership skills for your soul but also for your life in general. The insight and advice of the seven featured doctors only adds a more down to earth connection as they offer their comments as REAL parents themselves.

The motivational tips posted throughout the book were tested out on over 100 families and won hands down as solutions that are doable in today's fast paced world.

In fact, we tried not to leave out anyone's opinion as there are plenty of dads and grandparents who have piped up with their own tips as well.

One of the most popular features is the journaling space provided at the end of each chapter. Everyone seems to really appreciate it and even the kids enjoy the short evaluations which establishes a more open relationship with the author.

Jodie has listed some of her favorite websites at the very end of the book right after the awesome index.

I bought this thinking I might find some information that would be new and useful to me. Unfortunately I found neither. To begin with the book is not very well organised into chapters so you can look for a specific topic. Much of her "advice" is actually from other people, well at least she gives them the credit, and the tips and hints are often incredibly obvious or just plain old news. Sorry, I breezed through it one night and there was little that made the purchase worthwhile.

Format: Paperback
Mommy CEO, revised edition (150 pages including the index, website recommendations and order information) is a very short mediocre compilation of questions and answers from parents to parents (including additional comments from the author as well as input from 7 doctors). It addresses child/parent issues from birth through the teen years. I think I would have located the pertinent information to my needs quicker if the questions were organized by age rather than by "5 Golden Rules." Since my kids are 10 and 13, I found all the questions dealing with infancy through the preschool issues useless to me. In addition, I was totally unprepared and honestly offended by the Christian tone of this book--definitely not implied by its title. The author crossed the line of comfort with me (a mom who is NOT Christian) with comments such as this found ON PAGE 86..."Read Philippians 4:13 and pray it often: "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." I also found some of the author's comments to be patronizing in tone with her "should's" and "don'ts" as ON PAGE 78 about scheduling only 2 activities (which is sensible)...then she adds, "This can and should be done." And lastly, I hope the next "revised edition" will include corrections of the annoying, careless typos--such as the following 4 examples I found within a 30 page section of the book: ON PAGE 35..."We switched form..." instead of "from", ON PAGE 44..."...begin at around age 3 for boys and maybe 2 to 2 _ for girls" (perhaps it should read "2 to 2 1/2"), ON PAGE 55... "Viola!" instead of "Voila!", and ON PAGE 65 "...make sure we're around and take look at the monitor" instead of " ...to take a look". Although there is some helpful information, I suggest you try to check this book out from your local library to make sure it meets your needs and expectations BEFORE you buy it. Not enough "meat" in this book for me. :-(

Format: Paperback
I just bought this book due to the recent review that mentions it as "a toddler book" under another parenting book I purchased with it called "The Happiest Toddler on the Block". I was mislead by that review because this book is NOT focused solely on the toddler years but rather addresses a number of issues relating to tot-teens. It has some helpful information, but because it is so very short, there is not enough in it that meets my needs to warrant the purchase. If you are looking for a general Q and A book from other parents with children of all ages, "Mommy CEO" might be a good read for you.

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST HAVE! I wish that I would have picked up Mommy CEO before I began my company. Running a successful bussiness from home is a challenge in itself but throw in the factor of running a business and raising a baby/toddler along with all the other responsibilities that come with running a family and that can equal to some serious choas. I realize now that not only am I CEO of my business but also CEO of my family. When I took this wonderful new paradigm shift and put it into action it did wonders not only for my family but also for my business. I went from what seemed like total choas and stress to a peaceful harmony. Jodie Lynn stresses not to forget the little things in life -- as they are the REAL essence to life and happiness! She couldn't be more right and it's often all too easy to forget that if you're living in a state of chaos. I have recommended this book to all 70 mom entrepreneuers that comprise my site ...

This book was given too me by my secret santa from our book club. I loved it and hung on so many of Jodie's words. The 5 golden rules are "tight," as my 9-year-old would say.
Rule Number One: Treat Your Children The Way You Want to be Treated. This is explained as not asking your kids to do or say things that you would not do yourself. Be a good role model and treat children with respect, just like the adults in your life so they will do the same for you. My three kids loved this rule.
Rule Number Two: Know Your Children's Ages and Stages. She suggests to know what your kids can or cannot do and don't expect too much too soon but don't be reserved in teaching them the things that are important to every family. Every child is not on a time chart, but read a book on 2 year old's before you think your toddler should be able to hurry up, follow explicit instructions or button their own coat, etc., there are tons of examples.
Rule Number Three: Teach Your Children Responsibility. She says that giving children chores is an excellent way to teach responsibility and to get the help you need to get things done. Sharing household chores as well as sibling and pet assignments work well in all homes if everyone pitches in and does their own part. I see things my kids could be doing to help out more but felt like I would do a better job and get it done faster. Now, I have back tracked, revamped the chores and who can do them and I must say it is AMAZING. When I let go of the control, I gained free time to do other things and the kids seem to be pretty proud of their own work building self-esteem.
Rule Number Four: Squash The Overscheduling Dilemma.
