I love Meg Meeker's writing from heart felt experience both personal and professional. I love her emphasis on being free from competition with other mothers. Very inspiring!

We bought this for our daughter-in-law. I also read it and wish it was around when our children were young.

A "Must Have" Book
Date:July 22, 2011
Great book! Not life changing for me as my children are grown. Wish I had this information when they were little. I have purchased this book for my daughter and daughters-in-law so they don't fall into the same traps I have in the past.

Must read for all moms!
Date:June 10, 2011
This book is fabulous! It made me take a step back and really evaluate my life with everyone around me. I now look at the small stuff as exactly that, small stuff. No one else can do what moms do, period. This book helps you realize that. Coming from a working mom I could totally relate to what Meg talks about. The sacrifices you make to make everyone else happy also have to be balanced to make yourself happy.

From the perspective of a brand new mom
Date:May 12, 2011
I gave birth to my first daughter a year ago at the age of 34. I just finished reading this book. It is very powerful, and I am glad I am reading it now. It seems like there is a lot to be wary of that I would not have really contemplated. I am glad I am reading it at the beginning of my mothering journey instead of the end. It was interesting as I read because some of it I felt would help me to be a better friend or minister better to moms that have been in the game awhile. (I have some friends who have gone through, or are going through a lot of hurt.) The last two chapters, about fear and hope, really hit home as I thought of their circumstances. It is also an interesting read in that it may actually help you understand your own mother on a deeper level. Such as when Dr. Meeker speaks of mothers being most critical of their oldest daughters (I am the oldest daughter.) because they see themselves in you. What hit home with me the most is the way we women criticize or put demands on ourselves. Encourage. Simplify. I want all my mom friends to read this book. I have already passed it on.

The 10 Habits of a Happy Mother
Date:January 21, 2012
I have never written a review before, but I felt obliged to write a review to spare others of this book. NONE of her - data is researched or substantiated. She says "I feel" or "my friends believe". She uses words that should not be in books, like patients/kook, "pulling the plug" on a child, death bed in reference to a child, matchbox house in reference to a friend, putting down someone with mental retardation, etc. Then we have to read about how great her daughter is and the international travel she has done. Then she boasts of her life.
This book is so basic with no new information, anyone with common sense would know what she has in her book - this MAY be a good book for HS girls, but definitely not grown women -
