Mother Nurture: Life Lessons from the Mothers of America's Best and Brightest pdf epub –

This was a gift from my mother in law, which was a nice gesture It had lots of potential, but I couldn t bring myself to read the whole thing It s a series of short 3 or 4 pages chapters about successful people i.e rich and famous a summary of their achievements, a few random quotes from each of their mothers, and ultimately the same , relatively non inspiring blah blah about each I am sure that each one has a story to tell, but the way it was written, each story sounds about the same not very interesting. Let s just say that after the first few chapters, I skimmed the rest Rather insipid Who cares This book is an awesome way to think about raising a child, especially one that shows signs of being special enough to become someone famous Each section tells the story of some other famous persons mom and her wisdom Mother Nurture by Stephanie Hirsch shares the tales of the mother s of famous people like Beyonce , Stephen Spielberg, Uma Thurman and Lance Armstrong in a compelling collection.Read Very easy read but lots of advice you can probably already guess My favorite was Derek Jeter s mom I liked her plan of drawing up a contract with Derek including goals, rewards, and consequences And rather than squelching his dream of playing for the Yankees, they instilled in him the importance of working VERY hard for what you want.
