United We Parent would like to invite moms to participate in the first comprehensive coffee table book about moms – Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st Century.
We are currently in Round 2 of submissions for the Amazing Moms book. This round has a deadline of February 28, 2017.
By clicking https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByJKNR-n0asCM2kxVWV0VkQ5OWc you will find the form that we used for the dad’s coffee table book, DADLY Dads: Parents of the 21st Century, which has an expected debut date in April of this year. The DADLY book will feature 115 dads of various family dynamics from 11 different countries.
The form explains how and what to submit.
In the same folder of the enclosed link above we have included two samples of the page layout plus a copy of the front cover of the DADLY Dads coffee table book to give you an idea of what the Amazing Moms book will look like. The photos on the front cover are of dads in the book. Our team will also choose moms to be on the front and back cover of the book.

Moms should not make the choice to stay at home with their kids, because… they won’t make enough money?
Many may debate the “true meaning” of President Obama’s recent words regarding stay-at-home moms, but he said it quite clearly:
“Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make,” Obama said. “So let’s make this happen: By the end of this decade, let’s enroll 6 million children in high-quality preschool, and let’s make sure that we are making America stronger.”
According to President Obama, America will be made stronger by mothers spending less time with their children. Sad.
Go ahead, view the video here and watch him say the words!
Stay-at-home moms everywhere are reacting!
“This warped perception has been circling the drain of the public toilet far too long and when it came from the mouth of one of the most influential men in the world, I had to add a few points of my own.” Read the rest of this mom’s well-worded reaction here.
What do you think?
“Yes, my wife is JUST a mother…. Yes, she is just a mother. Which is sort of like looking at the sky and saying, ‘hey, it’s just the sun.'”
You’ve gotta love how this guy writes. Matt Walsh’s infamous “You’re a stay-at-home mom? What do you DO all day?” article earned his blog a slew of stay-at-home mom fans, not to mention about three million views in two days.
Read it, and it’s easy to see why.
The article was written as a tribute to Matt’s wife, a stay-at-home mother of twins, but it resounds with all stay-at-home moms because it heartens us that someone actually gets it and is willing to say it with no holds barred.
Most awesome of all, this is not just someone, but a guy. A husband! He sees our situation as it is, and it’s intoxicatingly refreshing! He sums up our conundrum precisely and with a clever brand of humor and elegance.
In a later blog, Stay-at-home moms: you don’t owe the world an explanation, Matt wrote, “I’m just a guy who loves his wife and appreciates the sacrifices she makes for the family. That’s really the entirety of my insight into this subject.”
Simply put, yet his words are music to all stay-at-home moms’ ears.
“We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created.”
So said Kirsten Dunst in a recent Harper’s Bazaar interview.
Good for her for not being afraid to voice this truth. I thought it was very refreshing to hear this from a Hollywood starlet–not to mention brave, considering the backlash sure to come her way. (And yes, it has.)
