Description-
  • They number in the millions and they are incredibly important to families and to our society, yet they are underappreciated, little respected, and even controversial.

    Who are they?

    They are the stay-at-home moms.

    These are women who know in their hearts that staying home to raise their children is the right choice for the whole family. Some do it from the outset of their marriages, while others make the difficult transition from career-driven women to homemakers. Either way, it is a choice that is incredibly rich and rewarding, not to mention challenging.

    Now Dr. Laura, building on principles developed during her long career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, provides a wealth of advice and support, as well as compassion and inspiration, to women as they navigate the wonders and struggles of being stay-at-home moms.

    Learn how:

    • to hold your head high and deal with naysayers;
    • to see the benefits of being home not only for your children but also for your marriage;
    • to understand the changes you see in yourself;
    • to realize that the sacrifices you endure now will make for lasting bonds and a stronger family, in addition to a more cohesive community.
    In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms is a special book, a profound and unique understanding of how important it is for mothers to raise their own children.
About the Author-
  • As one of the most popular talk show hosts in radio history, Dr. Laura Schlessinger offers no-nonsense advice infused with a strong sense of ethics, accountability, and personal responsibility; she's been doing it successfully for more than 30 years, reaching approximately 8.25 million listeners weekly. Her internationally syndicated radio program is also heard on Sirius/XM Radio, and is streamed on the Internet and podcast via StreamLink.

    She's a bestselling author of eleven adult books and four children's books, which range from the provocative (New York Times chart topper The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands) to the poignant (her children's book title Why Do You Love Me?). Her support of children and family values is legendary, and she is, indeed, "her kid's mom." She writes a monthly column for NewsMax, a daily blog, and posts videos weekly on The Dr. Laura YouTube Channel.

    Dr. Laura holds a PhD in physiology from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, and received her postdoctoral certification in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from the University of Southern California. She was in private practice for 12 years. She's also been on the faculty of the Department of Biology at the University of Southern California and the Graduate Psychology Department at Pepperdine University.

    She has received an award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense for her Exceptional Public Service, and among her numerous other honors, she has been the first and only woman ever to win the National Association of Broadcasters' prestigious Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality.

    In addition, Dr. Laura holds multiple trophies for sailboat racing, and is a Black Belt in martial arts. In the last several years, she has designed and handcrafted elegant jewelry for charitable causes, most recently for Operation Family Fund, which provides financial assistance to families of military personnel severely injured or killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. She has raised over $1 million for Operation Family Fund with the sale of her jewelry four times per year on her website, and with the proceeds from her 60th Birthday Bash benefit.

    She has been married to Dr. Lewis Bishop for 24 years. Their son, Deryk, enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2005 and has returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The stay-at-home-mom choir will love this affirming encouragement from the irrepressible Dr. Laura. Reading quickly and with the clarity of a radio veteran, she sounds supremely confident in her opinions, and impatient as ever with anyone who see things differently. As she does in most of her writing, she's trying to change one of the Western world's goofier family practices--sending infants to daycare so parents can work to buy things they don't need. It's a mixed blessing to hear Dr. Laura's take on this familiar argument, which she illustrates with concise personal stories contributed by her fans. Though her intensity and sarcasm will irritate some, she knows how to shape a point of view so that it has clarity and impact. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
