Now as smart as she is with a pencil, there is no pencil pushing for the fact many housewives SAVE more family income by being at home and running the household than dropping everything for work outside (or even inside) the home. "Housewives" are devalued and degraded non stop throughout, like you never evolved and climbed out from under a rock and make no contribution to your family nor society.
The business advice does have some merits, such as don't mortgage the farm or the house to make your business float or get started. Self employed is the best.
Vicki has a huge chip on the shoulder for any woman that is married to a man that makes more money or what she thinks is "the" money. What a stupid horse race. I say bravo and hats off to those women! Income is income.
In most normal marriages, this attitude that women are going to be destitute if their spouse passes away is insulting.Read more ›
The remainder of the book is very poor, supposed 'business' advice which is actually as shallow as can be, and as others have said, a typical 18 year-old would know more. The book has a definite feeling of two halves, it's as though the second half is simply there to pad out the length.
Brianna (Vicki's daughter), if you should happen to read this review, I had a mother a lot like Vicki and believe me, whatever you do for her, it will never, ever be enough. You simply cannot love someone like Vicki as much as they believe they should loved... and you'll have to put your hopes and dreams on hold while you dance to their tune. I had always thought you had a good understanding of your mother's behaviour and that you seemed strong enough not to get involved in her emotional games.... then I watched the end of season 6 and was shocked to hear you'd moved back in. Brianna, I say this for you own good. RUN, run as fast as you can, I would say take Michael with you, but I fear he's a lost cause where your mother's narcissistic and passive-aggressive behaviour is concerned.
