Create the family you want to have

A Question for You

Dear Readers,

I am in the process of writing a book proposal.  I have a question for you.  What is it that you look for in a parenting book?  Alternately, what would keep you from picking up a parenting book?  The book I am writing would focus on low, or no-cost, parent self-care, and self-acceptance and would provide a framework for establishing a loving relationship with your child and others.  I plan for it to focus on frazzled parents who feel overwhelmed by their children’s behaviors.  Does this sound like a book that would interest you?  I would love your input in this process.  Please feel free to leave comments or send a personal email to and to be completely honest.  I want to write a book that will be meaningful to you.

Thank you,

  1. Sounds like a great book idea. I would definitely read it! One thing that might keep me from reading is if it were too long. Overwhelmed mommies need books that are to the point, a quick easy read while we’re in between tasks, etc.

    • Thank you. Would the length of the book alone deter you? Or might you be more open to reading it if it were broken into digestible chunks that did not rely on reading straight through or that you could pick up without feeling like you had to start right back at the beginning if you put it down for a few days? Your thought are much appreciated 🙂

  2. Short, digestible chunks would be good. An ideal format would be sections for if my kid does bad behavior X, I could find recommendations for family solutions. Tips for teens would be ideal.

    • Thank you Casey for your thoughts. You are actually describing the book Parenting Teens with Love and Logic by Cline and Fay. You might want to look into getting that book since I think it’s going to be a while until mine comes out. I have not read that book specifically but have read others in their series and they are very good.

  3. I would definitely read it. Can I get an autographed one? 🙂 I tend to avoid books that focus too much on consuquences and punishment. But I don’t think you’ll be doing that in your book.

    • Dear Shannon, As one of my first followers and a supporter of mine, whenever I do have a book come out, I will happily send you a complimentary, signed copy :). Thank you so much for your kind words.
