Married Mom, Solo Parent by Carla Ann Coroy
About The Book:
Bookstore shelves are full of parenting resources for moms who are newly divorced or widowed. But where do moms turn if they feel like a single parent - but they're not? Whether he is away on business, deployed in the military, or obsessing over a computer game, dad may not be available for a variety of reasons. Moms who parent in this situation still need help and don't necessarily relate to the advice given in divorce recovery or single parenting resources. Married Mom, Solo Parent is a common-sense, down-to-earth look at the struggles wives and mothers face when their husband is not actively involved in family life.
I have always felt that my husband has been an active parent, but we are also very divided at times on how to raise the kids. We grew up with different morals, and different parenting styles from our own parents. So a lot of the time, Jason kind of checks out and leaves it to me. That is where this book comes in handy for me. This book can be read chapter by chapter, or just read the parts you think pertain to you. I especially like the parts about pride, and anger, and discipline divided. The book is chock-full of good advice, and I love the "Meet Mom" parts, that shares personal stories of real moms in these situations. This book is worth the read, even if you don't feel like a solo parent!
