Both of my kids are graduating high school in June and I wish I had had this book while they were growing up. It is full of tips to make your life easier and less stressful.

In the first new Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff book in nine years, Kristine Carlson shows how moms can live with less stress and more happiness. Carlson gives mothers tried-and-true advice that will empower them to find greater peace, joy, and harmony within themselves and their homes. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms reveals how to:
  • Be a Mom, Not a Friend.
  • Balance Being a Woman and a Mom.
  • Pursue Your Passion, But Not at the Expense of Your Children.
  • Reclaim Your Family Time.

My Thoughts:

What a fantastic book full of interesting and relevant tidbits that can make your life easier. When I get stressed, I take a deep breath, close my eyes and reorganize my thoughts. This allows me to tend to the crisis that may be unfolding before me. The book was easy to read, and each chapter touches on a subject that affects us today. I always wanted to be a perfect mom and I have learned from experience that may not be possible. Chapter 1 touches on that subject and reminds us that you do not have to be perfect to raise kids today. There is a handbook for almost every topic but I have never found one appropriate for parenting that was written in a way that was easy to follow and understand. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms is concise and right to the point. It is the perfect book for the mom to be and will help them start on the road to parenting.
