Mom! Get Real . . . and Get Free!

Are you tired of constantly trying—and failing—to be a perfect mom? Stop beating yourself up and let the truth about motherhood set you free! Real Moms debunks the "good mom" fallacies that have weighed you down by giving you some liberating "real mom" truths. This book punctures such mothering myths as: · Good moms look good all the time. · Good moms keep everybody happy. · Good moms instinctively know what their children need. · Good moms take responsibility for how their children turn out. · Good moms don’t admit their feelings of guilt or anger or fear—because to admit those feelings might make them look like they are not good moms.

Each chapter examines a myth and its corresponding reality, and ends with a how-to practical application, a "Real Mom" story, questions for reflection and discussion, and "Real Mom" quotes from Real mothers.

Wouldn’t you love to be free to accept your imperfections? Free not to feel guilty about your limitations? Free to ask for help, free to be real, free to grow? Freedom is in store for you—freedom to be the best mom you can be. This book will show you the way.

Based on 26 years of experience with parents of preschoolers and the results of 1,000 questionnaires sent to new moms and dads, this book identifies six areas of need: balance, commitment, interdependence, intimacy, mission, and hope. Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International touch on the issues that most concern husbands and wives as they make the important transitions of parenthood. How do we find time and energy to regain that romantic spark? How can we function as a team? How do we share responsibilities? How should raise our children? The answers are here, together with many others, spiced with vignettes that new parents everywhere can identify with. Designed to be both discussed and applied, this book offers clarity and hope, showing how marriage embodies a relationship that can grow stronger through a lifetime of transitions. Like the whimsical mobile to which Morgan and Kuykendall liken a marriage, a husband and wife may wobble in their relationship when a child comes along. But while regaining balance takes hard work, the payoffs are worth the effort. When Husband and Wife Become Mom and Dad will kindle new vision for the creative masterpiece a marriage can become when a marriage becomes a family.
