Momfidence (the book)
Lose the guilt. Love your instincts.
...so a few things have changed since I wrote this book. Like my name. And my feelings about the subtitle. Now that a few years have gone by (and I moved to California), my nutrition mindset is more woke and less cavalier, so I wouldn't trumpet it as my headline parenting philosophy. Though I do still believe that cookies aren't lethal and kids deserve to eat them.
But my fierce belief in the other chapter titles in Momfidence? Still yup and yup:
No Experience Necessary!
Too Much Advice Spoils the Confidence
You Can Lead a Child to Carrots but You Cannot Make Him Crunch
An Ounce of Prevention, Not a Ton
Bless This Mess
Ready, Set, Stop the Mompetition!
DO Be a Spoilsport (on sports)
You Can't Judge a Mom by Her Midriff
Moms Need Time Outs More Than Kids Do
If a Birthday Falls in Suburbia and Nobody Takes a Picture, It Still Happened
Even the Best-Laid Plans Fall Down
Stop and Smell the Crayons
Lost Socks Are Not Found Again
No Mom Is an Island (on strength in numbers)
Momfidence is available in a Kindle edition.
