Editorial Reviews

Parenting Magazine
By combining practical information with soothing wisdom, the authors help career women navigate the sometimes rocky road to full-time motherhood.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
According to freelance writer Sanders and Bullen, who serves with FEMALE, the national mothers's association, more and more of today's mothers are opting for full-time parenthood. Far from being unliberated drudges, the 600 women surveyed for this book are well-educated, enlightened professionals who want to do right by their children and have found that motherhood can be just as challenging as an outside career. Sanders and Bullen show readers what it takes to ``have it all but not all at once,'' including making the transition, letting go of outmoded ``happy housewife'' stereotypes and coping with the reactions of family, friends, co-workers and, of course, spouses. The authors write with realism, presenting the negative aspects of staying at home as well as its advantages. They provide a wealth of information on finding support groups, influencing public policy, and earning money while remaining at home; the book includes listings and short descriptions of relevant organizations, plus in-depth interviews with women who have successfully made the transition. A must for all mothers who are (or want to be) at home with their children. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Sanders, a college professor, and Bullen, director of FEMALE, a national organization for at-home mothers, surveyed 600 women who have taken sabbaticals from their careers to devote themselves to full-time mothering. Drawing on the information gathered, the authors offer suggestions for coping with reduced income, changing relationships, and altered self-image. They also explore home-based employment. An extensive bibliography enhances this readable manual. A worthwhile purchase for public libraries not owning Christine Davidson's Staying Home Instead (Lexington, 1986) or Arlene Rossen Cardozo's Sequencing ( LJ 11/1/86), which are similar in scope.--Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.
