I recently received Married Mom, Solo Parent from the Litfuse group for reviewing the book, and it’s a book of solid advice for moms who may feel like they are raising their kids alone, even if they are married and their husband isn’t staying involved for whatever reason.
It’s a good book that seems solid in it’s biblical backing… and while the overall theme is that you’ve got to run your own race as best that you can regardless of who may or may not be running theirs well, it by no means sugarcoats how hard this can be sometimes.
The advice given is very real and paractical, towards topics from dealing with your own emotions to discipline, and gets openly personal on struggles she has faced along the way with her family showing that she’s been there before herself and knows what it’s like to be facing the things she’s giving advice about
About the book:
For married women who feel like single parents.
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. Writing from her own experience as a married single mom, Carla Anne Coroy will help wives and mothers sort through their questions, such as: Can I do this alone? How do I raise kids to honor their father? How do I give my children a healthy perspective of marriage if they never see one in action? With practical suggestions, anecdotes, and biblical teaching, this book will encourage moms to see their position as a high calling, to find healing for their worries and frustrations, and to tap into God’s strength for help in facing the daily challenge of being a married mom, solo parent.
