My Children are My Legacy
With the humor and insight that can only come from the experience of raising two children on my own, I’m happy to share with you all of my simple, low-cost and unpopular opinions. Over the years I became known for being the mean Mom because I always went against what all the other moms were doing. But parenting is not a popularity contest, it’s about growing responsible, amazing and successful adults.
Keeping that in mind, I’d say that all the books I’ve written are either because of my children or in honor of them:
- My first effort, “You Can’t Love Your Children Too Much,” expresses my thoughts and passion around how I raised Jennifer and Alan as a single mom.
- “Shifting to The Business of Life” came about as a result of many unbelievable conversations with my kids and their friends.
- I hope that reading Alan’s very real “Letters from Boot Camp” will help other parents, as much as they helped me, to cope with a very scary, and life-changing, experience.
- And be sure to order a copy of Next Steps if you ever decide to purchase a manufactured home: This book will save your sanity.
