Supermom: A Guide to Kids, Family, Career, and Having it All
Today more than ever, having children means coming to grips with constantly rising expenses and with the fact that Mom almost always needs to work outside the home. That, in turn, means that Mom has to deploy her forces along a hundred different fronts. This book is a guide - based on Tiziana Rocca's experiences as a wife, mother, and director of a highly successful public-relations firm. "Like all mothers," Rocca writes, "my days are spent performing somersaults as I divide my time and energy between family and work. I've always got a million things to do, and each day is an obstacle course." Notwithstanding these difficulties, Rocca believes that Mom (with a capital M!) is the cornerstone of the entire family structure, essential to children's emotional and cognitive development. She writes with compassion, humor, and conviction about the unique strength of women and mothers: the power to "never give up and never give in."
