I have children–girls and boys. Trust me when I tell you that raising boys is far easier than raising daughters. In Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters by Darlene Brock, practical advice is given to aid in building a great relationship between mother’s and daughters that will only grow through the years.
The book is easy to read and understand and it is filled with real-life examples and practical advice. There are anecdotes that make the journey of raising a daughter come to life.
Being a mom is wearing many hats all at once. Each of my children is unique and requires different talents from me. Some require my counseling more than others, some need more hands-on guidance. All have needed me to be their protector, their coach and night-time monster patrol. Some of my children clean their rooms without being asked, while others require more encouragement. This book, Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters is about these jobs we try to master as Mom.
It’s about taking our most valuable investments, our daughters, and taking on the most difficult job in the world. It can be done..and when our daughters are grown we will have great memories built along the way.
Darlene Brock writes with a style that makes the reader part of the action. It’s easy to see the situation, feel the various emotions and identify with your role as Mom.
I love the humor Brock shares in the adventures of raising daughters. She is honest and lends creative solutions. This book is a journey through thirteen jobs moms are workign to accomplish in the dynamic and sometimes challenging mother/daughter relationship. It’s about making a difference in our daughters’ lives.
In talking about her new project Darlene stated: “This book is about what I learned – about the jobs you need to master, the advice from other women that helped me, as well as some realities about the life and culture we live in that informed my perspective. You can take on the most difficult job in the world – raising daughters – and not only live to tell about it, but smile along the way.”
