Reviews - What do customers think about Single Parenting That Works?
One of the Best Single Parenting Books Mar 26, 2007
I tend to fall for those "5 Steps" and "6 Keys" kinds of titles. I also recognized Kevin Leman as an author that I enjoy reading. This book is helpful and well-organized. It is easy to read. I would rank it among the top two or three books for single moms or single dads. I would also recommend my top pick in the "single parenting" category: Raising Great Kids on Your Own: A Guide and Companion for Every Single Parent by Dr. David and Lisa Frisbie.
Good Ideas That Actually Work Mar 21, 2007
Single parenting is hard work. Just when you think you've learned something, life has a way of slapping you in the face. Your teenage son rebels, your young daughter brings home a bad grade from school --- and you feel like a failure!
Kevin Leman "the birth order guy" helps single moms think clearly, make good choices, and deal with the daily stress of single parenting. This book is easy to read, easy to understand, and offers good ideas that actually work!

Pick out the good and throw away the rest. Jun 26, 2006
This book had several good tidbits of information to help any single parent. I'm happy to have read it, however there are many opinions of Kevin Leman's that are not backed by facts. I would advise anyone who reads this book to pay attention to the practical advice, but ignore the opinions - some of which lead me to question the sanity of the writer - such as "boys should live with moms and girls are better off with dads." I don't think he'd be saying that if he had a little girl ask him to go bra shopping or bring up the topic of menstruation.
Don't Moms Know Best? May 11, 2006
Every book will offer a tidbit "take away" message that will help single moms forge ahead with added determination and skill. This book will certainly add a little something to your parenting skills. For reassuring help with all your single moms concerns, please check out the completely revised third edition of the Complete Single Mother. My co-author and I are both single moms who have "been there".

Before reading this book I felt like I needed to find someone to fill the role of "dad" for my kids. I am so glad I read this book before making that mistake! Now I feel encouraged that I can be a good mom, with thriving kids. I felt this book was jam-packed with practical advice and also had great wisdom. I am now confident that I can do the job! This is a must read for anyone who finds him/herself as a single parent.
