I am usually one for reading romance novels, but when I was given this book to read, I found that I couldn't put it down. The stories tht you read about other people's adventures and mishaps during their parenthood, made me realise that many wonderful things had also happened to me, from watching my daughter take her first step, to see her start her first day in full-time employment. This book will stay with me for the rest of my life along with my own great memories.

This book had me reaching for the tissues at just about every story. I have a 3-month old baby girl who at first I thought was nothing but a nuisance. Then I began reading about how other parents felt at the birth of their children and how feelings of despair and frustration turned into love and care for these same little people. I also loved reading about how each stage of childhood progresses and the simple joys that can be experienced in each one. It felt odd but now I know how other mothers feel when they state that time goes by so quickly and before one knows it baby has become toddler which becomes child which becomes adolescent which becomes adult and then leaves to start their own cycle of life. A wonderful book to remind mothers of how special their relationships with their children really are regardless of their age- from the adult who comes to mom for advice to the child who says, " You are the best part of my day."

You can count on Chicken Soup to touch your heart. These stories are sure to get any Mom crying! If you are having a bad day with your children sit down and read a few stories - you'll feel much better about your own kids. I'd also recommned: Perfect Parenting by Elizabeth Pantley

For years I have wanted to read the Chicken Soup series, but finances being limited, I had to wait until my mother bought me Chicken Soup for the Mothers Soul. What a tremendous delight.....I fully intended to only read a story a day so that it would last a while, but within 24 hours I had consumed every story in the book. My heart feels lighter and my thoughts began to look on my life as a mother and how my children percieve me. It makes you want to strive for the ultimate goal....to be a mother remembered with love and admiration. I am a fan of Chicken Soup for life.

My husband bought me this book when it was first released and can relate to everything I have read. Last mothers day I received chicken soup for the mothers soul vol 2 and chicken soup for the expectent mother (as I am expecting my 3rd child). All 3 of these books have made me laugh, chuckle and cry but 1 thing that is guaranteed is once you start a story, 1 is never enough. An excellent read for any mother no matter on her age or the childrens age. I have even bought it for my mother !!!

I have all the books. Keep one in my car, one in my desk, one by the reclining chair. Whenever I feel down, I pick one up. They even inspired me to write a few short stories about loves ones who've affected my life. It was a great treasure for them to see my feelings in writing. In addition to the book, a box of tissues is a required side dish. I recommend them to all my friends and purchase them frequently as gifts.

i find some of these stories particularly difficult to read as a mother. for me personally, since i became a mother i find it impossible to hear stories about sick children or parents losing children, the sadness that would come from such a loss is to great to even think about, therefore i could not continue to read this book.

I recently purchased this book and have only a few more pages to read...all the stories are very touching/only a mother can relate, I believe. The one story which really sticks in my mind is the one about "My trip to Holland"...for anyone who has been blessed with a healthy child should read this story/it will make you look at your child and be thankful and it should help you look inside yourself and realize that patience for a normal child does not compare to the patience needed for a child with a disability.I think of that everytime I become upset or inpatient with my child/I realize how lucky we all are.
