Book Review of In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms
reviewed on

I am not very familiar with Dr. Laura, but I did not even finish the book. I found her commentary judgemental and repetitive. This seems as though her opinion could have been just as well made clear in an article as in a book. She does speak favorably of SAHMs but only by tearing down women who do not stay at home. I did not find this an uplifting book nor do I think she praises the SAHM. She simply belittled working mothers as selfish and uncaring. This leads the reader to the conclusion that a SAHM must be unselfish and loving. Personally this this book is not the kind of positive read I need on days I struggle as a SAHM.
