Mommy Guilt: Learn to Worry Less, Focus on What Matters Most, & Raise Happier Kids

This eye-opening book presents the results of an original, never-before-published nationwide survey of over 1,300 parents -- 96% of whom reported that they felt guilty about some aspect of parenting. The most common include yelling, family time, work choices, school, and sports. Mommy Guilt offers straightforward principles for handling these and many other common issues - as well as for dealing with everyday challenges that frequently add up to feelings of guilt.

Through practical, tried-and-true tips, anecdotes, quizzes, and worksheets, Mommy Guilt illustrates how moms can fend off the guilt and focus on what really matters.

From the back cover:

Have you ever felt that to be a good parent, you need to be superhuman? Like millions of parents, you’ve got Mommy Guilt: a feeling that your family is suffering because you can’t do everything. 

The authors of Mommy Guilt wanted to know what causes these potentially overwhelming feelings. They performed a thorough survey of more than 1,300 parents, and the results point to many factors, some of the most common being yelling, lack of family time, work choices, and tension over school and extracurricular issues. Mommy Guilt explores these factors and many others and offers seven straightforward principles for turning our hectic, stressed, guilt-inducing ways of life into more nurturing, healthful experiences for ourselves and our families.
