Teaser Tuesday ~ What a Difference a Mom Makes



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 


    Today's teaser is a little different I've taken a few quotes from Kevin Leman's book What a Difference a Mom Makes.
  • There's a time when you butt out and let your child handle his own problems. But there are other times when you need to step in and take action. (p. 44)
  • Expect the best, and you'll most often get the best.  (p. 54)
  • What you expect out of your children and how you treat them is what they will become.  (p. 89)
  • Your home needs to be a place where your son can fail-and learn from that failure.  (p. 114)
  • Just because your son is acting the way he is doesn't mean that he gets off not doing what he's suppose to (p. 118)
  • Controllers are powerful people who want to control everything and everyone. (p. 188)
  • I had a mom who believed in me despite all good evidence to the contrary.  (p. 244)
