The Tenderhearted Mom: Balancing Gentleness and Toughness by Jan Stoop

God equips all mothers with a tenderness that is essential to the healthy development of their children. Yet as moms rear their kids, they all face a dilemma: how to balance their intrinsic gentleness with the toughness they sometimes must use to discipline and set boundaries for their children. In this insightful and helpful book, author and counselor Jan Stoop shows women how to exercise their motherhood with just the right blend of tenderness and toughness
