Mom’s Journey: Practical Tips for Raising Kids is a straightforward and honest approach from the author, Limor Friedman, whose experience with motherhood spans more than 18 years. She doesn’t use any psychological babble or scientific research you find in most parenting books. She simply speaks from experience and offers help to those who are in search of it. She doesn’t claim to be right or wrong. She allows the reader to use her take on anything from homework to bullying and then draw their own conclusion within their unique situation.

What type of music relaxes you the most or do you prefer silence?

What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
My favorite tradition is getting/giving pajamas on Christmas Eve. When my brothers got too old and “cool” to wear pajamas, they started getting underwear. Then it was called “boys’ briefs”, and that has continued on through the next generation. On Christmas Eve, after dinner, you will hear everyone chanting, “boys’ briefs, boys’ briefs, boys’ briefs!!!”
If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself? Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 50?
Hmmm…I might do this a few times and then go back to what I had. I’m actually getting ready to buy my own domain and combine both my blogs, so this will all change soon. Does anyone have advice for me when I do it? I’m nervous about losing content and especially followers. Any help is greatly appreciated.
