Parents who are fed up with the pressure to turn their children into star athletes, concert violinists, and merit scholars-all at once!-finally have an alternative: the world of Slacker Moms, where kids learn to do things for themselves and parents can cut themselves some slack; where it's perfectly all right to do less, have less, and spend less. Slacker moms say "No" to parenting philosophies that undermine parents'-and children's-ability to think for themselves. They say "Yes" to saving their money and time by opting out of the parenting competition. And they say "Hell, Yes!" to having a life of their own, knowing it makes them better parents.In this witty and insightful book, author Muffy Mead-Ferro reflects on her experience of growing up on a ranch in Wyoming, where parenting-by necessity-was more hands-off, people "made do" with what they had, and common sense and generational wisdom prevailed. We should all take her sane lead!

Finally! A witty and insightful book that puts parenting back into perspective. Muffy Mead-Ferro compares the "hyper-parenting" of today with that of her childhood on a ranch in Wyoming, where kids had to figure things out for themselves, parenting by necessity was more hands-off, and common sense and generational wisdom prevailed.From the Author:
It was a joy, as I wrote this book, to look back at the wonderful yet "slacker" way I was raised on a Wyoming ranch. But I'm sure that, no matter where you grew up, you can look back one or two generations in your own family and see parents who did just fine without the whopping slew of instructions and equipment that modern-day moms are supposed to have. It makes you wonder if maybe we parents can all relax just a little.
