Review: Keep in Real and Grab a Plunger

Keep-it-Real-Blog-TourAbout the book:
Learn how to overcome your natural manipulative, authoritarian tendencies and foster your child’s self-discipline, respect, and emotional maturity. Humorous, insightful, and authentic, this book will get you through the sticky stuff with grace so you can enjoy those parenting moments that make it all worth it.

About the author:
Popular radio personality, university professor, author, and TV expert Julie K. Nelson combines her professional expertise with her personal experience as a mom of five in this book. Humorous, insightful, and authentic, this must-read will help you enforce rules without manipulation or coercion and addresses a wide variety of essential parenting topics.

From Reidhead Randomness:

In Keep in Real and Grab a Plunger, humor and wit abound as encouragement, stories and relate-able experiences are shared.  Many topics (and age groups) are covered:  family vacations, talking to teenagers, encouragement and praise, helping kids when they make mistakes, helping kids overcome fears, potty training, and MANY MORE!  The author gives you a very real glimpse into her day......I'm sure most moms could relate!

As a home school mom, I have a different set of challenges, but I have seen family and friends go through many of the challenges.  For example, I don't have to worry about the frantic "Get-your-hair-fixed-NOW-so-you-don't-miss-the-bus" scenario, or the "lemme-hurry-and-pack-a-lunch" one either, but....MOST of the book deals with the everyday challenges of being a mom.  This is a fun book for every parent!  It is filled with great advice and perspectives that are easy to implement!

I received this book to write a review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
