Mom-in-Chief by Jamie Woolf Review


The Mom-In-Chief’s main declaration [to me] is:

“If you’ve ever thrown your hands up in frustration over a pesky toddler… then Mom-In-Chief is a must read!”

My toddler’s middle name might as well be trouble. I have recently learned that her pesky side comes from boredom. Having this knowledge is certainly helping our relationship but prior to this knowledge things have been difficult for me and her.  Though, I still feel like I need certain tools to help her and me.

Working Mother magazine is one of my favorite ones I subscribe to. I love reading about other professional mothers who thrive on business and family life.  During a recent issue of Working Mother they showcased Jamie Woolf’s Mom-in-Chief. I knew I had to give this self help book to try to incorporate my business skills with my home skills.

Mom-in-Chief states that it will help with things like:

  • How to maximize the learning opportunities that come from mistakes
  • How to stay connected with a pesky toddler or testy teenager
  • How to create rituals that strengthen the family’s esprit de corps
  • How to feel less like a maid or short-order cook and more like a skilled leader capable of unleashing the potential of others
  • When to step in and when to step back
  • Why working with your spouse or partner is crucial to executive function and team happiness.

I found this self help book to have some great tips. I felt, though, when Woolf began breaking down the type of parent you may be, called Mom Modes that it made me zone out. After taking the online test since the book version was too long and confusing it was determined that I am a: Foster Individuality – Liberators type parent. Which means that it is important to me to foster my daughters individuality and uniqueness. It seems I care more about that than I do about emotional attachment and achievement.

The best part of the book was hearing the stories of other parents’ experiences with their children. The stories explain what they did right and wrong. Also, they explain what could be done different next time. These made the biggest impact on me.

For business oriented moms who need help with running their households and raising their children the way they want them to be raised, Jamie Woolf’s Mom-In-Chief might be the must read. Purchase your copy today at Amazon for only $15.61.
