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.

i admire the woman in the book, she is an inspiration.
I would strongly recommend this book not only for super-sized families, but for any parents with children. The suggestions in here can work well regardless of whether you have 1 children or 7. I have referred to this book on many occasions, most recently when we were purchasing a washer and dryer. Lots of great suggestions. Read this book!!
