Real Solutions for Busy Moms

Genre: Families and relationships/nonfiction

Moms are super busy these days, whether they have one child or twelve, and if you have to balance a career with children and a home, then you need help! You need real solutions right now. Ms. Ireland understands. She is the parent of three children, a wife, and the CEO of an international business, so she draws on personal experience, research, and conversations with other moms across the nation to offer hope and powerful, practical answers.

Ms. Ireland’s advice doesn’t center around beauty tips or how to dress. Rather, she discusses important things such as finances, budgets, raising children, managing a household or career or both, and finding time to take care of themselves.

Ms. Ireland shares stories of her own life and wisdom to bring across the important message “You can do it all, just not all at once.”

I enjoyed reading through REAL SOLUTIONS FOR BUSY MOMS, especially the question and answer sections included in each chapter. Plus at the end of each chapter, Ms. Ireland includes a checklist for you to follow to see how well you are doing and where you need to give extra attention.

I am a homeschooling mom of five, and I found most of the advice kind of common sense, but everyone can gleam a bit of wisdom—and reminders of common sense that might be evading them. REAL SOLUTIONS FOR BUSY MOMS is filled with wisdom, and some of the advice might be exactly what you need to solve a problem that you are struggling with right now. $23.99 hardcover. 221 pages.
