    I'm Outnumbered!

    One Mom's Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys

    Boy #1 is a blessing. Boy #2 is a joy. But what happens with boy #3? And what if there is a #4? Or more? Suddenly, Mom is outnumbered. Throw Dad into the mix, and you have enough testosterone to chase Mom out the front door and keep her on the run from dawn to dusk.

    A father can tell you a lot about raising boys. Researchers and psychologists can give you a lot of statistics and advice. Other parenting books can generalize. But only a mom of all boys can really explain what life is like when you are surrounded by men. From one "boy-mom" to another, I'm Outnumbered! offers sound advice and encouragement for every mom who has more than one son, even if there's a girl in the mix. Author Laura Lee Groves has raised four redheaded boys and has lived--in fact loves--to tell about it. Her strategy of intentional parenting (guiding moms to see their role as proactive parents) has been gleaned from her own experience, from other boy-moms, and from parenting experts. Her combination of personal anecdotes and authoritative research will show boy-moms how to

    • handle sibling rivalry

    • foster leadership and teamwork

    • combat conflict

    • stay organized

    • love them unconditionally

    • and much more

    Laced with touching and humorous stories, this practical manual provides encouragement, inspiration, and information--especially for the outnumbered mom.
