4.0 out of 5 stars Let's start by defining `slacker'....
The author of this book is certainly not a "slacker" in the sense of "lazy". "Slack-er" as in `less slack', or more laid-back, maybe, but certainly NOT a slacker - she's an working mother of two (albeit, with outside help), so it's extremely unlikely `lazy' is even in her dictionary.

So what's this book about? A quick summary:

3.0 out of 5 stars A great gift for a mum to be or recent mother. Empowering
It was a short read and I wasnt sure what to expect from this book but it turned out to be really empowering and I benefitted from it. I will be buying this for friends who are new parents or expecting for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's start by defining `slacker'...., 28 Jan 2005
This review is from: Confessions of a Slacker Mom (Paperback)
The author of this book is certainly not a "slacker" in the sense of "lazy". "Slack-er" as in `less slack', or more laid-back, maybe, but certainly NOT a slacker - she's an working mother of two (albeit, with outside help), so it's extremely unlikely `lazy' is even in her dictionary.

So what's this book about? A quick summary:

1.Don't spend money on un-necessary stuff, e.g. too many toys.

2.Why it's not a good idea to spoil your kids

3.Why it's not a good idea to over-protect your kids

4.Teach your kids to think for themselves

5.It's Ok to get mad as long as you express it correctly

6.Why it's important to have a life of your own

7.Listen to your instincts - kids were being brought up perfectly well, even before all the parenting books (and sites) came to be

All-in-all sensible advice, but not necessarily all that easy to apply, so if you're looking for a quick-fix solution, this is not the book for you.

If, however, you're looking for a book that will make you feel more comfortable about parenting your way (as opposed to some author's way) this may well be the one for you.
