Good Enough Mother Rene Syler Perfectly Imperfect Book on Parenting

Product Details

In an ideal world, mothers would have time to hand-sew their kids’ costumes for the school play, prepare all-organic meals, and volunteer in the classroom at the drop of a hat. In reality, most moms have to settle for plopping their little ones in front ofSpongeBobso that they can prepare yet another chicken nugget-based dinner, guiltily convinced they’re falling down on the job.InGood-Enough Mother,Rene Syler pulls back the curtain to reveal the truth about modern mothering and reassure time-stressed moms that even if their children are strangers to made-from-scratch cookies, they can emerge as happy, well-adjusted, fully functioning members of society. Mother to two great kids of her own, Syler explains how she learned to chuck perfection for practicality — in short, how she became a Good-Enough Mother. She shows other women seeking to balance family, work, and some semblance of a personal life how to happily join the ranks of Good-Enough Mothers, who occasionally serve breakfast for dinner yet give their children plenty of what really matters — love, time, and support.Each essay provides welcome empathy and sage advice on navigating life’s different obstacles, whether it’s dealing with annoying Supermoms, bluffing through a third grader’s math homework, or coping with the words that strike terror into every parent’s heart (“Your son’s teacher on line one”). Offering real wisdom tempered with humor and warmth,Good-Enough Motherwill have every modern mom laughing in relief and recognition.
