The Happiest Mom: Parenting Magazine Review
Originally published: March 15, 2011
I am very impressed with her perspective in this book, the way she sees a problem can change the mother's happiness and the children too. it has many secrets on how to be always happy mom.
First, she said we shouldn't look at our kids as mother’s projects, she explained a lot of people focus on sort of the effect on their kids and It is a horrible mother to children and she thought gosh it's like an unhappy way to raise children.
It just seems like treating them like if you don't do everything perfectly right when being little kids so everything is going to end up in a disastrous way when they grow up. It just feels like every day it would be hard to enjoy yourself and hard to enjoy family life, so I was struck by that, Thinking Kids is a project of many parents that takes a rather narrow view of success too. She certainly can not tell her children who are going to become, shape them into a certain idea of what she believes is a success.
And for her, success is one in which my kids are self-sufficient happy family-minded people, that kind of meeting their potential whatever that going to be, and she just kind of likes to help them find that but she can't turn them into something.
Considering my children as a long-term project is a burden for mothers and children, and I think she respects her children and a mother as a person first
Now, some of you might think she seems a lazy mom with her perfect sophistication, so she has some suggestion up some points for clearly that help her children and to become the organized mom
The second, I like one, she says “Take the easy way out” in the book, what is this, that seems opposite? She thought It is the way when everything is so hard, and very difficult for the mother, a lot of effort and her approach is kind of like don't give up.
It not like she said don't have any standard at all, but pick the thing that is important to you because you can not all great everything, you all have to choose things that our priorities that meet you value, and you know those are things we focus on and everything else.
The parent is not a competitive sport and we are not going to get point with the end having work smarter, not harder and having you know put in more effort so that makes a lot of sense to just pick the thing that is important to you and focus on those, It does not have to be hard, So please mothers don’t think you can do oh things for your family, that's just a burden, it is not work, let do what meets your value well, that she wants her kids to know too
That is a great point . Third, I love this “Trust your gut”. Trust our gut and to hear what our guts are saying is to kind of turn off that outside noise, this one so fun
The fourth she says “Keep it real”, be the man that you are so if you are your laid-back mom. If you are the mon who want to read your kids but does not want bake cookies so be that mom, just be who you are because of it the same person with kids.
I think it is right because the children don't have any concept from the start about their mother.
Complaints are often a woman's habit when they have sacrificed the benefits of what they deserve but the husbands and the children are always disappointing, and the complaints do not make people comfortable. That's why if the mother is upset, the rest of the members aren't allowed to be happy. So let's be laid-back.
Many famous and critics are very impressed with Megan Francis as:
"I found myself underlining passages and laughing out loud in recognition. This thoughtful, hilarious look at motherhood is a terrific resource for anyone who wants to be the happiest mother she can be."--Gretchen Rubin, author of The New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project
"This book takes the revolutionary approach that you can be a good parent while enjoying yourself."--Ada Calhoun, author of Instinctive Parenting
"The Happiest Mom is stuffed with tips that made us feel relieved rather than burdened."--Heather Flett and Whitney Moss, coauthors of The Rookie Mom's Handbook
I agree with them after reading.
Advantages: Troubles should be simple and positive in this book, expressions friendly, humor, revolutionary issues.
Defect: Some point I find very popular, I expect more her special perspectives
Different from other parent books, often advising on what to do, then with Megan Francis "The Happiest Mom" gave me an overview of the problem, before that the family problems confused me. After reading this book I feel more confident to be a mother, I hope you all have the same benefits as me.
