My Mother, My Mentor provides a research-based look at what the children of working mothers really thought. It is uplifting, heart-warming, and a tremendous relief. I read it in one sitting and have bought ten copies to give to my young colleagues now struggling with toddlers while remaining valuable members of our professional services company.
Thank you to the author for approaching the subject in a methodical way which makes the conclusions believable. I definitely recommend the book to working women, their children and their husbands.
This book can’t say that kids turn out better if their moms work outside the home or not. What this book does is brings out the role of moms as mentors and brings in every aspect of mothering I could think of. There are a number of charts and graphs that apply percentages to answers from surveys taken from mothers, sons, and daughters to represent the impacts from their perspective. That’s all I’m going to say about the collected data. This book was a lot more interesting than the numbers. In the book the author, Pamela Lenehan, uses responses from interviews and her survey to tell the stories of real people.
