Book Review: Breaking the good mom myth

Title: Breaking The Good Mom Myth
author: Alyson Schafer

Loved, loved, loved this book. Alyson Schafer offers some great advice and provides tools that you can actually use in real life. The idea is to not pamper your children and to not have your whole life revolve around meeting their wants and over protecting. But as a mom you know that that's not always easy so in this book she provides real-life scenarios and great tools that are supposed to work in the household. A few of her charts, recommendations and phrases are so good that I wrote them down. I just hope I remember her advice when I am in a difficult situation! This might be one of those books that I will be picking up again and again...


  1. I loved this book, too. I felt much better about myself as a mom after reading it. You should also try her next one, "Honey I wrecked the kids" for more great suggestions.

  2. thanks Dayle! all of her books are now on my reading list
