Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Susan Callahan, Anne Nolen, and Katrin Schumann are friends and mothers who live and work in the Boston area. Among them, they have ten kids and more than thirty-five years of experience raising children. They represent a range of parenting lifestyles, from stay-at-home mom to mom with a full-time career.

From the Back Cover

"Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too is breaking new ground for mothers everywhere. It stands the motherhood-as-sacrifice model on its head. The result is healthier moms and healthier families. Bravo!"
--Christiane Northrup, bestselling author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"What a powerful book! Each and every day in my practice, I see mothers worn out from neglecting themselves. This book offers them thoughtful and exciting new ideas on how to thrive during this stage of life, not just survive."
--Dr. Richard Dupee, contributing doctor to "Today"

"For today's mothers, who are often swimming in--and sometimes drowning in--a vast sea of demands and responsibilities, this book is a life raft."
--Abby Seixas, author of Finding the Deep River Within: A Woman's Guide to Recovering Balance and Meaning in Everyday Life

"The authors give us both a fresh look at society's unrealistic expectations for mothers and new tools to fix the problems those expectations can cause."
--Kate Kellogg, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Management, MIT
