Superman is a fictional character. So what makes us think that "supermom" isn't? This book doesn't stress an impossible, guilt-inducing formula for becoming the perfect mom. Instead, with hope, honesty, and humor, it provides direction on how each mom can make the most of the love, talents, responsibilities, and frailties that have been given to her. What Kids Need Most in a Mom focuses on essential motherhood know-how, such as trusting sons and daughters to God's care, instilling forgiveness in children, getting out of the "guilt" factory, celebrating life, and sharing important discoveries with kids. A supply of this insightful book should be on hand for baby showers, parenting classes, and Mother's Day events.
