Item description for Mom: Becoming the Mother Every Child Needs and Every Husband Desires by Holly Anderson...

One of America s most trusted parenting experts writes the book Mom . Mom is a step-by-step guide to building a great relationship with her children. A relationship that one day turns into a best friendship. Many mothers spend 18 plus years raising her kids, only to have them leave the house and not look back. These kids call only when they have to, come over for the holidays that they can t get out of. Phone calls are awkward and not that often. That is not how it is suppose to be. You apply the principles in this book and your kids will be coming to you all of your life. They will call because they want to. They will enjoy talking to you, and sharing with you all that is going on in their life. They will look forward to spending time with you. When reading this book, please understand that we all make mistakes even us moms. We all have made mistakes and will probably make a lot more in the future. Being a great mom isn t about making no mistakes. Being a great mom is about learning not to make the same mistake over and over again. Being a great mom isn t about our lack of character in a few bad situations. It is our overall character that we demonstrate to our kids throughout each day and throughout our lives. Realize that great moms are not born; they are developed. Every mom has inside her the potential to be a great mom. But like anything in life, it takes understanding how to be great, then a lot of practice to be great, and, finally, choosing to be great. Being a great mom isn t something you just try or even do for 18 years. It has to be something you do for the rest of your life. You have to dedicate yourself to never stop growing and to never stop changing. Always pursuing being the best mom you can be. Whether your kids are 2 or 52, it is never too late to start developing a great relationship with them. I believe if you do everything in this book, one day your kids will be saying, My mom is my hero and my best friend.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mom?

Compare Books  Feb 9, 2008
If you compare Scot Andersons DAD with his wife Holly Andersons MOM as some reviewers have, you will see the story about the sprinklers does not add up. One book has Scot at the computer and the other has Holly at the computer. Bad writing, bad editing, or bad memory?
A Mom And Dad Journal Family Life From Their Own Points-Of-View  Feb 4, 2008
A pastor and his wife, the parents of four boys, each wrote a book on their family life experiences. Not only do these two books deliver insightful, colorful, and humorous narratives, they detail the same events from two different first-person perspectives--one from Scot Anderson (Dad), and one from Holly Anderson (Mom).

Rip off you say? A cheap way to make two books out of one you say? Try again.

Together, these two books are the neatest things I've seen in a while.

While each book is a good read in and of itself, to fully appreciate the stories you need to read both versions, and you'll want to. Here is an excerpt from chapter(s) six, "Living a Life of No Regrets," where Dad and Mom, respectively, detail their observations about how men and women manage their time:

Scot Anderson (talking to fathers),

"...look at a sample schedule for the week:"

12 hours of watching NCAA tournament

10 hours watching miscellaneous TV (two hours a night)

3 hours at the driving range

4 hours golfing

2 hours washing cars and motorcycle

1.5 hour date with wife

7 minutes reading Bible

20 minutes (exaggerated) of prayer

6 hours at lake

1.5 hours of church (attending three times a month)

Holly Anderson (talking to mothers),

"...look at a sample schedule for the week:"

18 hours watching Grey's Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, the OC, Smallville (The average woman watches 2.5 hours a day)

10 hours talking on telephone (The average woman talks 1.5 hours a day, check your phone records)

3 hours lunch dates with friends

2 hours doing laundry

5 hours complaining about how no one helps out

3.67 hours with kids (20 minutes a night and two hours on weekends)

1.5 hour date with husband

20 minutes (exaggerated) of prayer

6 hours at lake

1.5 hours of church (attending three times a month).3

Beginning to understand? I have found that the best way to read both books is to finish a chapter in Dad and then immediately read the same chapter in Mom. However, I often find myself reading only a page of Dad's account and thinking, "What might Mom have to say about that?" So I'll put down Dad, pick up Mom and laugh at the contrast until I am glowered at by Starbucks-drinking New Englanders.

Final Note: Online counseling may be a great way to help busy and stressed-out moms. Learn how to provide online counseling with this book: The Therapist's Clinical Guide to Online Counseling and Telephone Counseling: The Definitive Training Guide for Clinical Practice

Awesome book!!  May 10, 2007
Reading the Mom book has changed the atmosphere in our home. I feel more confident as a mom and it has not only changed my relationship with my child, but also with my husband. One of the things this book teaches is how to treat your spouse in a way that will show your child that mom and dads relationship is really important. Learning and implementing this has intern made my child more secure. Now, I am not a self-help book reader. I have good intentions, but I usually get through chapter one and then I'm bored and I go back to the latest fiction novel on my night stand. Not with this book though. Holly Anderson shares so many stories and personal experiences that you can't help but continue to read and laugh. I'd recommend this book to all moms, seasoned or new! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Awesome book  May 10, 2007
My wife and I read this book and it's an absolute must if you have children of any age. It provided us with insightful keys and practical tools to developing deeper and meaningful relationships with our two kids. Besides this book you may want to also consider 1-2-3 Magic as well.
"Touched my heart"  May 10, 2007
I just want to say "thank you Holly Anderson for writing this book". This book touched my heart! I believe this is exactly what ALL Moms need to read and realize about motherhood. She shared the importance of having a vision for the type of Mom you want to be and the type of life long relationship you want to have with your children. This is an inspiring book that will greatly impact my relationship with my children in the most positive way. I highly recommend this book to moms of all ages and future moms.
