A Mother's Manual -
THE BEST INSTRUCTION BOOK FOR RAISING CHILDREN
Expecting a child is one of the biggest turning points of any person’s life. But while the terminology around this happy event can be a bit baby-centric, the process of “having a baby” is only the very beginning.
That baby is going to grow into a child, a teenager, and beyond—a unique individual with his or her own needs, wants, and fears. And as a mother, your responsibility is to nurture and give that child the best life you possibly can—to shape the future of your family, and maybe even the world as a whole, for generations to come.
Being a good mother and raising a healthy, happy, and productive human being can seem an overwhelming, thankless challenge at times. And if your own parents did not give you a positive example to learn from, the task can be even more difficult.
A Mother’s Manual serves as a straightforward and easy-to-follow guide for mothers everywhere—whether you’re looking to break an inter-generational cycle and give your child the joyful, loving childhood you never had or you’re just looking to ensure a brighter future for the children you love so much.
