Product description

From the Back Cover

Have you ever seen a mom with kids hanging all over her heaped-up grocery cart and marveled at how she juggles it all? Have you ever wondered if you could do it? A Sane Woman's Guide to Raising a Large Family is written from the practical, experienced perspective of a mother of ten. It has thoughtful, helpful answers to important questions, such as:

- Can a parent meet the needs of multiple children without drowning in sheer neediness?

- How can a moderate income stretch to include more children?

- How can you make space in your home work for you?

- What are some ideas for handling mountains of laundry?

- How can you preserve time for yourself and your marriage?

- How can you manage multiple children and their activities?

Whether your idea of a big family is three kids or ten, this fresh, commonsense approach to parenting will help you find peace of mind and joy in a big bustling household, and, most importantly, learn how a child can feel deeply cherished as an individual.
