Readers' Comments on Staying Home: From Full-time Professional to Full-time Parent

by Darcie Sanders and Martha M. Bullen

"Making the decision to stay home with my two children after a 12-year demanding, successful career that I loved was very difficult for me. It was a decision I never expected to make. I started to read Staying Home and I couldn't put it down. By the time I was done, I had a much clearer picture of the next step in my life--another phase that I could now see was just part of the journey. Staying Home laid out the challenges and the benefits, and made me see that this was a positive choice I could move towards with my self-respect and identity fully intact!"
--Laurie Tennant, Orinda, CA

"I received Staying Home as a gift when I had been home with my first child for about 6 months. At that time, I was trying to decide whether or not to go back to work, and this book was exactly what I needed to read. Staying Home put into words the feelings that I had in my heart about being home with my son. It helped me to put things into perspective and to begin to take
seriously my role as a mother at home.

I've recommended this book to dozens of other new mothers. And every time I'm feeling a bit underappreciated in my role and need a boost, I pick up the book again and feel refreshed and renewed in my decision."
--Gin Shaw, former elementary teacher and administrator, Atlanta

"Staying Home is a phenomenal resource for women considering at-home mothering. It addresses issues of living on one income, relationships between friends, relatives, and the "outside" world, and how to reaffirm your decision and be happy with yourself. The authors have great insight into women and their feelings in adjusting to the at-home world. This book also has a great reference list of organizations that can help you create a network of friends during your years at home. I would definitely give this
book five stars."
--Cindy Schival, Alpharetta, GA

"Thanks for the good read! I first found Staying Home in our county library when I was disconsolately looking for some--any--material on moms who choose to be home. I was thrilled to find the book and it really made me feel better about my choice. Coming of age in the 1980s, I think women were kind of programmed to think that if you didn't have a career and a family,
something was wrong with you. I don't think ANYONE in my graduating class ever said out loud they aspired to be a wife and mother. The book really made me realize there were other options besides working full-time."
--Mary Williams, via e-mail
