Audible Editor Reviews

The stay-at-home-mom choir will love this affirming encouragement from the irrepressible Dr. Laura. Narrating quickly and with the clarity of a radio veteran, she sounds supremely confident in her opinions, and impatient as ever with anyone who see things differently. As she does in most of her writing, she's trying to change one of the Western world's goofier family practices - sending infants to daycare so parents can work to buy things they don't need. It's a mixed blessing to hear Dr. Laura's take on this familiar argument, which she illustrates with concise personal stories contributed by her fans. Though her intensity and sarcasm will irritate some, she knows how to shape a point of view so that it has clarity and impact.

Publisher's Summary

They number in the millions and they are incredibly important to families and to our society, yet they are underappreciated, little respected, and even controversial.

Who are they? They are the stay-at-home moms.

These are women who know in their hearts that staying home to raise their children is the right choice for the whole family. Some do it from the outset of their marriages, while others make the difficult transition from career-driven women to homemakers. Either way, it is a choice that is incredibly rich and rewarding, not to mention challenging.

Now Dr. Laura, building on principles developed during her long career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, provides a wealth of advice and support, as well as compassion and inspiration, to women as they navigate the wonders and struggles of being stay-at-home moms.

Learn how:

  • to hold your head high and deal with naysayers;
  • to see the benefits of being home not only for your children but also for your marriage;
  • to understand the changes you see in yourself;
  • to realize that the sacrifices you endure now will make for lasting bonds and a stronger family, in addition to a more cohesive community.

    In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms is a special book, a profound and unique understanding of how important it is for mothers to raise their own children.

      "great"

      Doctor laura is straight forward, opinionated and humerous. Her voice is great to listen to- very expressive and interesting and the content is interesting and helpfull. After reading this book I am now a big dr laura fan and have listened to everything I could get my ears on. A great reminder for women who are (or want to be) full time mothers and the families that support them that what they do is important, valuble and can not be replaced!
