"Motherhood is a career -- the hardest and the best", writes Linda J. Eyre. "It's also an amazing, electrifying, sometimes terrifying roller-coaster ride full of action, adventure, and risk". This newly revised edition of A Joyful Mother of Children, which includes insights from additional years of mothering experience, will add humor, perspective, and a little magic to the lives of mothers in all stages. A special section for mothers of young children offers stress reducers, sound suggestions, and motivational challenges that will make day-to-day mothering easier. In a friendly and reassuring style, the author, herself a mother of nine, has written chapters on viewing children as individuals, creating a joyful partnership with one's husband, appreciating teenagers, cherishing the present, and other meaningful topics. Her fresh, invigorating point of view and solid common sense will help women find true joy as mothers.
