Reviews - What do customers think about Real Solutions for Busy Moms: Your Guide to Success and Sanity?

SolutionsI  Apr 7, 2010
I enjoyed the book it helped with issues at hand and how to make a better life being a busy mom. I liked the financial part since I worry about not making ends meet. The rest was awesome.
 
The Book Does Not Live Up to Its Title  Oct 22, 2009
We should not judge a book by its cover, but I do think it is fair to judge a book by its title. I was excited to get this book as I am always looking for ways to "get it all done" as a busy mom. I thought this book was going to help me get things done more effectively. This book has only added to all the things I have to do and does not provide any solutions on how a "busy mom" can get it all done.

Ireland tackles huge issues with just one trivial paragraph and then quickly moves on to the next item. Got a daughter with bulemia, get her help. Balance your check book more than once a month. Watch out for poison oak--but no mention of poison ivy, deer ticks (lymes disease), mosquitoes (west nile virus), etc. At the end of each chapter is a list of all the things a busy mom should be doing. But I ALREADY KNOW THIS! Ireland just gives you lists of things to do and no real solutions on how to get it all done.

I was greatly disappointed by this book.
 
Solutions  Oct 6, 2009

I have always liked Kathy Ireland and was excited to read her book, Real Solutions for Busy Moms. I found it to be full of priceless treasures to be shared with women of all ages from all walks of life. Single young women wanting to have a family of their own someday and Mothers and Grandmothers will be inspired with new insights to apply to their own unique experiences.

The book begins with "Money Matters" and I must say not only was I delighted with the subject matter but it became one of my favorite chapters. I had often heard it said that one should get in the habit of saving money and paying yourself $10.00 per day. Kathy explains three reasons for chasing after prosperity illusions and adds some good advice on learning to sacrifice, saving your money and giving excellent affirmation to the reader that you're the mistress and your money is the servant. Kathy's idea of evaluating each potential purchase based on need rather than a feeling of entitlement is sound advice for sure!

All seven chapters of Kathy's book complement and build upon one another to make a great fort, if you will, or a firm foundation of blueprint plans and a guide to keeping your sanity. Each chapter includes a discussion section, a series of questions with answers to give you solutions that you need. Kathy shares from the heart her life's experiences on what works for her and is willing to share the nuts and bolts in her tool kit in finding practical solutions that can make life easier in our busy world. Did I mention Kathy shares recipes with us? You'll definitely want to read this great book... I loved it!
 
Help for the Harried  Sep 3, 2009
Most of the solutions offered here are obvious, but I don't think that the usefulness of the book is diminished. As with many self-help books, the most useful thing that you may take away from this book is the realization that your problems, while seemingly overwhelming, are not unique. In fact, they are so common that people can make money writing books about overcoming them! And people do overcome these problems. And so can you.
The solutions offered are common sense, the sort that seem obvious when you take the time to read the book and think about your problems.
This is a Christian book, which may be a turn-off for some. It isn't heavy-handed: the secular can simply skip over the suggestions about consulting your pastor and the Biblical references. Likewise, the author's celebrity status may be an attraction for some and a negative for others.
 
Even Experienced Moms Can Learn Something  Jul 27, 2009
I had heard a lot about this new book from Kathy Ireland. Having 5 children and a library full of parenting books, I wondered if there was anything new that I would learn. I was surprised! The book is laid out in very organized chapters, with initial advice and thoughts, but then specific ideas on how to use the parenting technique. I loved the practical advice and great ideas that she offered. She doesn't just write about fluff, but tackles serious issues that affect our teens. The book was a fast, easy read, and would definitely be a great reference to go back to. In addition, she writes with faith and how to tie that into parenting. Her style is as if she is there talking to you, friend to friend. Great book...highly recommend this to any parent!
