Every mom wants to succeed. Every child also wants to succeed. In Easy Does It, Mom, Barbara Joy provides moms with positive encouragement, knowledge, and tools they can begin using immediately as they continue their recovery and move toward being the best moms they can be. Joy relies on experts with degrees and experts with "mom" behind their name. For more than ten years, Barbara Joy has worked with moms in recovery from alcoholism and other addictions.
In Moms to Moms, Barbara Joy, a parenting counselor whose clients include addicts and alcoholics in custody, uses a time-honored recovery tradition: sharing stories. She interviewed more than 60 mothers in recovery from across the United States who have struggled with addiction. These are women of all ages, races, and religious affiliations who candidly share their experiences. Some are mothers with young children; others have grown children living on their own. Many have lost their children to the courts or have given them up for adoption. This is real world advice from women who have been there.
