"Your Children want YOU!"

"The Power of Moms" website is a collection of everything related to the up's and down's, of being a mom.  The site offers learning tools, podcasts, workshops, articles, and a free subscription to their weekly newsletter.

Recently, author April Perry wrote a posting that has received over 800 positive comments from women who can completely relate to the feeling of needing to be a perfect mom. If you are feeling discouraged,  there is not enough time in the day, inadequate, and have not yet read this article, you should right now!!

Here is a small sample, but do visit: "Your Children want YOU!"

"There’s this crazy phenomenon going on right now. Good, devoted mothers get on Pinterest . . . and blogs . . . and Facebook . . . and Twitter . . . and then they flip through parenting magazines and TV channels (full of advertisements and media hype) . . . and they’re convinced they’re not enough.
and unless their garden parties are thematically accessorized with butterfly lanterns,
They’re convinced that everyone else has magnetic, alphabetized spice containers, 
and they’re wearing the latest fashions (in a size two, of course), there’s no point in even showing up for the day.
Last Saturday, this happened to me...."
