Judyth Piazza chats with Julie Barnhill, Author of One Tough Mother
Thirty-two million women seek out parent-driven content online every day while reality shows feature moms of every social, financial, ethic, educational, and religious persuasion. What better week could you pick than National Parents` Week to feature an expert guest on parenting?
Julie Barnhill, a mother of three, and author of the book, One Tough Mother: It`s Time to Step Up and Be the Mom (Revell Sept. 2007), is conducting Talk Show interviews between now and throughout National Parents` Week, October 15-22, 2007, to encourage moms to hang in there for the most important job of their life.
During your interview with "One Tough Mother Julie," she will share with your audience what she has learned from her national speaking tours where she meets with thousands of moms each year-some happy, others sad.
According to Julie, a growing number of parents are simply overwhelmed with feeling out of control, and ineffective with their precocious toddler, headstrong preschooler, increasingly mouthy grade-schooler, junior high know-it-all, or hormonally-challenged teenager. And sometimes all five!
Why are Moms having so much trouble? Julie Barnhill believes that Moms need to step up and commit to parenting with 10 non-negotiables. These will strengthen Mom`s backbone, undergird her confidence and shape her character to make her the One Tough Mother her kids need. Of course, Barnhill helps get Moms there with lots of humor, encouragement, and a dose of reality.
Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, offers practical books that bring the Christian faith to everyday life. They publish resources from a variety of well-known brands and authors, including their partnership with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and Hungry Planet.
