Good Advice from ‘Mom’s Journey’

Good Advice from ‘Mom’s Journey’

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.

Thank you to Tomoson and Ebookpro for my complimentary copy in exchange for this review.

Unsolicited Advice

Have you ever received a lot of unsolicited advice in a short period of time? It can be disguised with phrases like these:

  • you should…
  • did you ever consider…
  • you know what would have been good…
  • I would have…
  • why don’t you…
  • may I make a suggestion…(wish I had the guts to say NO!)

After several of these seemingly helpful suggestions, I really wanted to say, “Great idea! Go right ahead and do that! I’ll be over here minding my own !”


Sometimes it depends on who’s offering the advice. If it’s someone who has their shit together already and has a proven track record of having good ideas…no problem. Bring it on.

But if it is someone who is always late, never follows protocol, flies by the seat of their pants, and really just likes to hear themselves talk…go away quickly before you get hurt.

That’s my advice.

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

New Age/Zen music relaxes me the most. I have very vivid memories of listening to it all day every day for about two weeks before my wedding.

Show us a two of your favorites photographs?  Explain why they are your favorite.   If you are not a photographer, think of a two favorite scenes in your life and tell us about them.

My siblings and me, really having fun, late 80’s. We all have such different personalities.

Looks like it was staged, but it wasn’t. True family photograph.


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?
