Help Wanted: Moms raising daughters by Darlene Brock


With honesty, creativity and sprinkled in humor Darlene shares her thoughts on what a job description of a mother would  look like from her experience.  She shares that which needs to be accomplished in the role and challenges found in the job.  Brock concludes with the job may be difficult but seeks for those women that are willing to take up the task of raising daughters.  No experience necessary;  all on the job training.  It isn't always easy but it will definitely make your life richer in the process.  There is nothing more important or fulfilling than being a mother.  I must say this was a very wonderful read and if you have little girls it is time you get started.  However, if you have boys the same concepts could apply.  Just a plain good motherhood book.

 In her debut book, Darlene, who balanced a career in the recording industry alongside motherhood, relates 13 coaching metaphors for how to raise children. In talking about her new project she stated: “This book is about what I learned - about the jobs you need to master, the advice from other women that helped me, as well as some realities about the life and culture we live in that informed my perspective. You can take on the most difficult job in theworld – raising daughters – and not only live to tell about it, but smile along the way.”

Now for the fun part.  I have a copy of this book I'd love to giveaway.  Think outside the box and give me a job title you think may be in this book.  She's creative in her titles.  If you guess one that is in the book I'll give you a bonus entry.  I must however, limit this to US residents only because of mail cost.  I'll draw a winner on June 16th for this book from everyone that comments.  Please be sure to leave a way of contact.  Thanks.

This sounds like a terrific book! I think this would be the perfect gift for my sister who is raising her rambunctious and independent, beautiful daughter! My guess for one the title chapters would be "The Heartbreak Kid" about helping your daughter navigate the dangerous waters of the first date!
Wonderful review and somthing I look forward to reading as well as giving as a gift!
