"Parents today try too hard to be superhuman, often sacrificing their own well-being -- and relationships with friends, family, even their spouses -- to meet the ever-increasing demands of their children's lives. Of course, such efforts inevitably fall short, and parents blame themselves. "Mommy Guilt" encourages parents to let go of unobtainable (and ill-advised) goals in favor of parenting philosophies that concentrate on the whole family. This eye-opening book presents the results of an original, never-before-published nationwide survey of over 1,300 parents -- 96% of whom reported they felt guilty about some aspect of parenting. The most common include yelling, family time, work choices, school, and sports. "Mommy Guilt" offers straightforward principles for handling these and many other common issues -- as well as for dealing with everyday challenges that frequently add up to feelings of guilt. Through practical, tried-and-true tips, anecdotes, quizzes, and worksheets, "Mommy Guilt" illustrates how moms can fend off the guilt and focus on what really matters."

Reviews

Charlotte Parent: .,."covers life's most stressful parenting issues with a welcome sense of balance and humor. Moms will find loads of practical advice and strategies." "...well written and well organized, includes an appropriate amount of humour, and is enjoyable to read." -- Journal of Association for Research on Mothering "As a practical, 'how-to' guide, this book is very successful. It is well written and well organized, includes an appropriate amount of humor, and is enjoyable to read. One strength of the book is the inclusion of practical examples of 'Mommy Guilt,' alternative ways to think about them, and strategies to deal with them. I particularly like the authors' use of a developmental approach throughout the book. This developmental approach not only assists parents in dealing with their current issues, but also provides them with a glimpse into the future when their coping strategies will need to change."
