Reviews - What do customers think about Desperate Households: How to Restore Order and Harmony to Your Life and Home?

Wonderful book...  Aug 22, 2009
Lots of good tips for getting your house in order. She also makes the reader feel like getting some control of your household is doable.
 
Kathy Peel has it Right for All Families  Aug 19, 2009
Kathy Peel has it together. God first and then your family. All of us need to get the order right and then things will fall into place. Don't believe the world's lie. Women should look to their husbands for leadership, co-author your ideas for the family, but allow your husband to take the lead and encourage his leadership.
G. Duran from Texas
 
Loved This Book  Jul 19, 2008
I recently read this book as part of a neighborhood book club. Everyone in the group loved this book.

The book starts by discribing the importance of "Family Manager." It gives a 2 page list of all of the many jobs that must be accomplished in a home to keep it running smoothly. It gives great ideas on how to get your family invovled. This book then moves on to various topics that are important in the home. These include: Finances, organization, personal time, time management, meal planning, family respect, long term goals, etc. It helps each family to develope their own "Mission Statement."

I have already used many of the ideas from this book in my home. My kids love having dinner time jobs and have created a job chart to assign duties such as cooking, setting the table, clearing, and loading the dishwasher.

I used the methods from this book to clean my closet, my daughter's room, and the family room. Our home is a happier place to be.

This a great book with easy to use ideas to improve family life. Make sure you keep a notebook handy while you read!

Thanks Kathy for a wonderful book.

 
disappointment  Mar 24, 2008
Not many books will tell you that God says your husband has the ultimate say in all family/household decisions. This one will. It goes down hill from there.
I read a minimum of 1 book a day (non-fiction and fiction!) and I've never felt strongly enough to write a review on any website. This is a first (and hopefully a last!)
 
Very helpful  Aug 23, 2007
This book has some great real life examples that I think most women will relate to. I also found this to be an easy read.
