From the Back Cover
They number in the millions and they are incredibly important to families and to our society, yet they are underappreciated, little respected, and even controversial.
Who are they?
They are the stay-at-home moms.
These are women who know in their hearts that staying home to raise their children is the right choice for the whole family. Some do it from the outset of their marriages, while others make the difficult transition from career-driven women to homemakers. Either way, it is a choice that is incredibly rich and rewarding, not to mention challenging.
Now Dr. Laura, building on principles developed during her long career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, provides a wealth of advice and support, as well as compassion and inspiration, to women as they navigate the wonders and struggles of being stay-at-home moms.
- to hold your head high and deal with naysayers;
- to see the benefits of being home not only for your children but also for your marriage;
- to understand the changes you see in yourself;
- to realize that the sacrifices you endure now will make for lasting bonds and a stronger family, in addition to a more cohesive community.
In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms is a special book, a profound and unique understanding of how important it is for mothers to raise their own children.

Mother's day is around the corner with 2 kids away at college having their finals. I scoured the web without luck, looking for a nice reflection on the rewards of SAHM. I think I will write my kids a letter, thanking them for their success and how great that makes me feel-the most wonderful Mother's day gift of all! My rich reward-to see them mature into adults and accomplish their dreams. I continue to be amazed at my kids accomplishments and it brings me such joy to know I played a big role in that, despite how hard and unfulfilling it was when they were little. Fall is busy watching them compete in football & XC. My son is a year away from graduating w/a 4.0 in EE at the best engineering school in the country, president of his fraternity, captain of football....my daughter runs XC for a top 20 D1 NCAA team...& my HS junior is top notch Ultimate Frisbee & basketball ;) All 3 are very happy-what more could you ask for? Hang in there moms-your fulfillment is yet to come, it does get better. It wasn't easy & I DO have video to prove it ;)
Ok, I know this is a bit technical but well worth deciphering. I'm glad to see it's risen to front page status, because parents need to make an informed decision. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.Read more ›
