More About This Book

Overview

My Mom Was my Dad is not just another book on parenting. This book was written to help single mothers deal with raising boys. Based on my life story of how I was raised in a single - parent home due to the death of my father, I wanted to take single mothers on a journey of what they will face as they try to raise a boy to a man. I cover deep topics such as; the discussion of the bird’s and the bee’s, along with showing a young man how to pay bills and also about sports. This book is much more than the average how-to-book on parenting. Once I started to reminisce about my childhood, my memory overflowed with incidents and events long forgotten! I started to laugh and shed a few tears at the same time when I decided to write this book about my mom and my childhood! Readers may do the same as they walk with me through my first-hand accounts of my mom, Rena Johnson’s, humorous and sometime confusing job of making a Man out of a Boy!

    Highly Recommended!!!

    I want to say I enjoyed reading this book. It made me smile and cry. Overall I give it an A! Your mother reminds me of how my mother was raising me and my siblings. I want to say your mother deserves all the recognition you are giving her. Your mother did a job a lot of women can't do. God Bless!! Faith
