"Surely, for some women, being a stay-at-home mother is an entirely magnificent, totally blissful, always fulfilling, happily-ever-after dream come true.
This book isn't for those women.
Instead, The Stay-at-Home Survival Guide is
for all the other women out there who are doing t
he 24/7, hands-on work of raising children by being full-time stay-at-home moms— be they brand new mothers or veterans — and who, from time to
time, struggle with the challenges of this kind of in-the-trenches motherhood."
The Stay-at-Home Survival Guide is a lively, intelligent and insightful book specifically written for and with women who are currently employed as the hands-on, 24/7 caregivers of their children. Unlike many other books on the subject, The Stay-at-Home Survival Guide does not sugarcoat, sentimentalize
or reduce to slapstick the realities of being a stay-at-home mom. Instead, author Melissa Stanton (a stay-at-home mother of three) and the women she interviewed acknowledge and address the perks and pitfalls of managing, enjoying and, yes, surviving their stay-at-home careers.
