Publishers Description
Mom Get Real . . . and Get Free Are you tired of constantly trying---and failing---to be a perfect mom? Stop beating yourself up and let the truth about motherhood set you free Real Moms debunks the 'good mom' fallacies that have weighed you down by giving you some liberating 'real mom' truths. This book punctures such mothering myths as: - Good moms look good all the time.- Good moms keep everybody happy.- Good moms instinctively know what their children need.- Good moms take responsibility for how their children turn out.- Good moms don't admit their feelings of guilt or anger or fear---because to admit those feelings might make them look like they are not good moms.Each chapter examines a myth and its corresponding reality, and ends with a how-to practical application, a 'Real Mom' story, questions for reflection and discussion, and 'Real Mom' quotes from Real mothers.Wouldn't you love to be free to accept your imperfections? Free not to feel guilty about your limitations? Free to ask for help, free to be real, free to grow? Freedom is in store for you---freedom to be the best mom you can be. This book will show you the way.

Reviews - What do customers think about Real Moms?

A Book Every Mom Needs  May 25, 2005
If you're like me ~~ a mom of toddlers ~~ there are some days when you think you're going insane ~~ this book IS for you. This book is explosive in a positive way ~~ it is uplifting, encouraging and enlightening.

I have to admit when I read the first page, I thought yeah, yeah, this book isn't talking about me. WRONG. This book is definitely for me and it's one that I will never loan to another person till my kids are grown up ~~ then I'll give it to their wives to read. I will need this book for years to come ~~ it offers practical advice, spiritual guidance based on the Biblical scriptures ~~ and stories about other moms who went through the same stuff I am now going through.

This book offers solutions and advice ~~ but in a gentle loving way. This book tells you a Mom Myth (like you have to be perfectly made-up at all times) and a Mom Reality (yeah right ~~ real moms are known to wear their PJs all day long) ~~ and it helps alleviate the pressure that moms might be feeling.

Speaking for myself ~~ I am a mom that has high expectations of myself. I expect my house to be spotless, my children perfectly mannered at all times, and I have great food on the table every day. Well, the reality is: the dog will stick his nose on my perfectly clean windows five minutes after I just washed them; the kids will have a bad day five days in a row; my meals may consist of take-out and the laundry is piling up, the telephone's ringing off the hook and all I want to do is hide. That is my reality. These two authors helped me to realize that it's ok. It's normal. I am normal. I am a Real Mom.

They have funny stories in there as well ~~ they help find the humor in sticky situations and they offer a reminder ~~ these kids of yours will never stay young. One of these days they will move out and you'll have your perfectly spotless house again ~~ wishing for the sticky fingerprints on the walls again if it means that they'll say I love you one more time.

The authors also offer encouragement through their messages. They are not overly spiritual in this book ~~~ but just right to remind you that you're not alone in the struggle of Motherhood.

This is a book I consider a gem ~~ and every time someone tells me they are having a hard time with their kids ~~ this is the book I would give them to read. It can be a life-line in those crazy days. It's one that I know that I'll read over and over again.

Encouraging and Unique  Feb 11, 2005
Morgan and Kuykendall, directors for the national organization, MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), know what moms need: honest, hopeful, helpful advice. In Real Moms, they note popular "mom myths" (such as real moms must always look good or a real mom never gets angry) and the corresponding realities. Each chapter ends with a practical application, questions for reflection and quotes from real moms. Their message is encouraging; their style, unique and down-to-earth. I needed this book!
