Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It is disconcerting for a parenting book to end with the hope that readers will make it the last guide read for a long time. However, educator and motivational speaker Borba (Parents Do Make a Difference) puts forth the premise that parents-especially mothers-have become too caught up in molding their parenting style to the latest experts' recommendations. Herself a mother of three, Borba is particularly averse to the modern parent's surrendering to a culture in which kids are overscheduled to the point where the parent (again, especially the mother) is too stressed to remember what really matters in raising emotionally healthy children. The author is here to remind us that it isn't the tutoring and planned activities that make parenting successful. Through a series of brief chapters that each focus on a particular "secret"-e.g., "A mother who applauds effort nurtures perseverance"-this book strives to help mothers get back to what's "real" in parenting. A worthy addition for most parenting collections.-Kay Hogan Smith, Univ. of Alabama, Birmingham Lib., Lister Hill Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
