"Enjoy these years, they go by fast," says the older moms to the younger ones. Ludicrous advice! You'd give anything just to live through them. Blending humor and wisdom, Yates-mother of five- offers frazzled moms tips for maintaining a postive self-image, nurturing their marriage, disciplining effectively and shaping a creative Christian home.
Susan Alexander Yates is an author who has truly "been there." When her twin daughters were born, they joined siblings ages two, four, and seven. Through the challenges of raising those five young children, Susan realized the need for an honest, practical book that helps parents through that time of life.
This new edition of the best-selling And Then I Had Kids contains guidance for dealing with common struggles such as discipline, priorities, and fatigue. Susan is honest about the frustrations of parenting, yet encourages parents through her own experiences. She offers a biblical perspective on family life, inspiring mothers (and fathers!) to create a loving atmosphere, find good role models, and shape a Christian home.
Susan Alexander Yates is the author of several books, including And Then I Had Teenagers, and is a regular guest on FamilyLife Today and other national radio programs. She and her husband, John, are popular speakers at marriage and parenting conferences throughout the country. Susan and John live in Falls Church, Virginia.
