Boy #1 is a blessing. Boy #2 is a joy. But what happens with boy #3? And what if there is a #4? Or more? Suddenly, Mom is outnumbered. Throw Dad into the mix, and you have enough testosterone to chase Mom out the front door and keep her on the run from dawn to dusk.
A father can tell you a lot about raising boys. Researchers and psychologists can give you a lot of statistics and advice. Other parenting books can generalize. But only a mom of all boys can really explain what life is like when you are surrounded by men. From one "boy-mom" to another, I’m Outnumbered! offers sound advice and encouragement for every mom who has more than one son, even if there's a girl in the mix. Author Laura Lee Groves has raised four redheaded boys and has lived—in fact loves—to tell about it. Her strategy of intentional parenting (guiding moms to see their role as proactive parents) has been gleaned from her own experience, from other boy-moms, and from parenting experts. Her combination of personal anecdotes and authoritative research will show boy-moms how to
- handle sibling rivalry
- foster leadership and teamwork
- combat conflict
- stay organized
- love them unconditionally
- and much more
Laced with touching and humorous stories, this practical manual provides encouragement, inspiration, and information—especially for the outnumbered mom.
