They number in the millions and 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;
  • see the benefits of being home not only for your children but also for your marriage;
  • understand the changes you see in yourself; and
  • 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.

    " I was needing some affirmation and Dr Laura can do that for me. Nothing earth shattering here, but good reminders just the same. "

    " Normal Dr. Laura style. She, of course, misses some points. She didn't choose to have kids until she was older, so I don't think she can fully recognize the sacrifice of having children in your early 20's and being horribly poor, but still making it. But, it's good publicity for stay-at-home moms! "

    " Friends may be surprised that I read a book by Dr. Laura, but this was exactly what I needed. I grew up in a very career-oriented family, and stay-at-home moms were very much looked down upon. I believe in being a stay-at-home mom for myself and our family, but I needed more emotional support for doing what I know is the right path for me. Although Dr. Laura has her sharp tongue, I can read past it to find the gems of support. She helped articulate the feelings that I had but could not conceptualize or put in words. This book was very helpful for me when I was feeling down and invisible as a stay-at-home parent. "

    " This book was really great and helped me to realize that through all the difficulties stay at home mom's have, we also get the sweetest reward. And so do our kids. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because a good piece of the book is geared towards moms who have a hard time giving up the workplace and feel pressure to NOT be a stay at home mom. I have never felt that way, have always wanted to stay home with my kids, and haven't had anyone (that I care about, anyway) downplay the importance of it. "
