Hope for the Weary Mom {Review – Guest Post}

My oldest son is all over the Autism Spectrum: SPD, ADHD and ODD. Those are a lot of letters that mean many things for different people. Dealing with his behavior issues and trying to help him help himself makes this momma WEARY! Are you the mom of an “easy to love but hard to raise” child? Then you know what I mean.

One of my biggest fears when it comes to my son is that I cannot help him. I don’t know what it’s like to live inside his body. I don’t understand all the different ways his brain and body function.  I have a hard time understanding my son and because of that I’m a terrible mom to him at times.

Now, I know that I’m not really a terrible mom. I try my best on most days. But there are days when I blow it big time and I start to let the weariness take over. For a long time I felt like I was alone in the way that I felt. But then last year I read Hope for the Weary Mom, and that all changed.

    Definitely sounds like a book I need. I read the table of contents and thought, I need each chapter in daily blog form so I will make time to read it. I have soo many books to read, both ebooks and physical books and don’t have enough time in my day, but when I see posts from different home school blogs, I read them and they usually give me much needed encouragement, as well as more books to read. =) Thanks for the opportunity.

    Raising two children with Autism has made me happy, but quite weary, what an amazing help this book sounds to be for many! I hope I have an opportunity to read it soon :)

  3. While I wish I had this book when my kids were growing up so I wasn’t so laden with guilt, I think reading it now as my guys are young men may help relieve some of that nagging pressure in the back of my mind.
    Thanks Jennifer.
    Blessings,
    Janis

    I’ve looked at this book online many times, but I still haven’t ordered it. I need some encouragement because my days keep getting busier and I can’t see a way to stay on top of it all (and stay sane).
