Rosalyn Johnson ValdezBeavercreek, OHAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5November 7, 2013Rosalyn Johnson ValdezBeavercreek, OHAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Tracey Eyster's book, "Be the Mom", has helped me to reevaluate my parenting style. Eyster offers many useful suggestions for avoiding the mom traps that sometimes strain mother/child relationships. She encourages moms to take a God-focused approach rather than a self-centered approach to parenting. Moms can easily relate to the honesty of her entertaining and well-written anecdotes. The quizzes within her book help moms to step back and objectively look at the effectiveness of their child-rearing methods. Her Biblical references direct moms to the ultimate parenting guide. I hope to apply what I've learned from Eyster's book to become a better mom. Thank you, Tracey, for reminding me that in spite of my imperfections and insecurities, I'm more than 'just a mom' to four wonderfully imperfect children. In fact, you have helped me to see myself through God's eyes with this quote from "Be the Mom": "He knows you are the perfect mom for your children."
