Parents experience lower levels of emotional well-being, less frequent positive emotions and more frequent negative emotions than their childless peers
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2009
Tired of the same old "expert" parenting books written by docs and celeb moms who haven't a clue what it's really like day-to-day for the rest of us? Well, everyday moms everywhere will be elated to know there's a new book featuring open, honest advice from the standpoint of an average mom, muddling her way through motherhood. A Mother's 5 Roads to HAPPY! Strategic Directions to Mothering the Chaotic Early Years… With a Smile, by Emily Blasi (imahappymom), provides directions to finding joy amidst the chaos of becoming a new parent, while exploring the real-life experiences and mistakes of one mom and how they helped pave the roads to her happiness.
Motherhood may not always be instinctive or pleasurable. In fact, "Parents experience lower levels of emotional well-being, less frequent positive emotions and more frequent negative emotions than their childless peers," says Florida State University's Robin Simon, a sociology professor who's conducted several recent parenting studies. Understanding this phenomenon from her own struggles as a new mom, Emily offers clear paths to overcoming everyday challenges in order to find the true fulfillment in being a happy mom. And with the time-starved, crazed schedule of a new mom in mind, this 32 page book is a breeze to read.
"I'm sure women will find comfort in this simple, brief handbook, which encourages and empowers new moms to overcome their fears, inadequacies and unhappiness," says author and mom of three, Emily Blasi. "With step-by-step tips, this easy-to-read book addresses universal mom-issues, such as career juggling, dividing chores, discipline, meltdowns, stress-busters and finding me-time…all in the pursuit of happiness."
Emily, a native of NY, has been writing for 15 years as a public relations professional, crafting stories on a variety of newsworthy topics, but never before has a subject been more dear to her heart. As a mother of three, ages seven, six and three, she has first-hand experience finding happiness as a mom, and believes it is a timeless story that needs a new voice.
A Mother's 5 Roads to HAPPY! retails for $9.95 and is available at all major bookstores, as well as online at http://www.imahappymom.com and http://www.amazon.com. A portion of the book's proceeds will be donated to charity.
