Is your "home number" your "work number" too? If you are a stay-at-home parent, you know the workday never really ends. And every day brings both all-too-familiar challenges and unexpected joys. How do you keep it together--physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Cheryl Gochnauer's previous book, So You Want to Be a Stay-at-Home Mom, helped parents consider what staying home requires and whether that choice was the best for them and their families. In this new guidebook Gochnauer tackles common--but often difficult--questions and challenges that beset stay-at-home parents:
  • retaining an individual identity
  • feeling appreciated
  • viewing childrearing as a valid career choice
  • spending wisely
  • resisting guilt
  • evaluating work-at-home opportunities
  • handling sibling rivalry
  • volunteering at your child's school
  • succeeding as a stay-at-home dad
  • avoiding the TV
  • getting help with chores
  • setting a godly example
  • nurturing your spiritual growth
Forty-two brief chapters cover a variety of topics and can each be read in about ten minutes. Gochnauer also includes an appendix on networking opportunities for stay-at-home parents and a helpful listing of ministries and organizations that offer parenting resources, services and conferences (all accessible on the Internet). If you are a mom or dad at home part-time or full-time, you'll find immense encouragement--plus practical advice from one who has been there (and still is )--inStay-at-Home Handbook.
