MomSense: A Common-Sense Guide to Confident Mothering

MomSense: A Common-Sense Guide to Confident Mothering by Jean Blackmer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is a good read especially for moms who are feeling alone or isolated. The book does a good job of providing examples of parenting and the lessons that a mom can learn through other moms who are just like her. I did feel like the book was one example after another and that it didn’t really get into something super substantial like I hoped it would. I did learn a lot from the patience chapter. I am severely lacking in the patience department and I really need to work on that. There were some good ideas to help me with that so it was by far my favorite part of the book.

I think this book would be beneficial for new-ish moms, moms of very small children, and moms who are just feeling overwhelmed. I do not think this book is idea for moms who are experienced or deal with childhood trauma because the problems in the book are fairly trivial in comparison to holes in the walls and door and massive property destruction because “mom read one story instead of two”.

Overall, I would recommend this book to my friends. It is a light, easy read that is well-organized. It doesn’t get into heavy-duty parenting like so many of us have to deal with on a daily basis and it provides some fresh ideas for those of us struggling personally in some of the basic parenting skills departments.
