The author presents common sense in a friendly, motherly way and, at the same time, in a shockingly straight-forward manner with frequent support she draws from scripture. She views most things in black and white and can be somewhat tactless in phrasing some of her more stark conclusions. Many of her points are valid though. The primary actions she suggest will go a long way toward simplifying and bringing new meaning into your life. Many alternative activities are provided from lots of sources.
This is a book that I found (and still find) difficult to absorb at times. I usually read a few pages and then work on absorbing it for several days. It can be difficult to face the responsiblity of your own actions and how they affect others around you, including your spouse and children. The book stresses parental & personal responsibility. She stresses repeatedly that a parent's job is hard work and lots of it.
One final note: if you are desperate to have a child by any means necessary....I recommend that you check the book out of a local library first. This book offers you options that you may not want to hear and thus, not pay for. You may find this book brings you insight you never thought possible and decide to purchase it after all. I did.
I agree with the author that you should have as many children as God would bless you with. Our economy is in trouble today because we don't have enough people to do all the jobs that are available. Also, having babies at home is the SAFEST place to have them. Hospitals are full of germs and the policies they enact are not usually for the baby's or mother's benefit. For this reason among many, Mary is right to recommend homebirth.
Many people may not be ready to listen to Mary Pride. But the world would be a better place if they did. I absolutely love this book!
