Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too!

Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too: It's Good to be a Little Selfish - It Actually Makes You a Better Mother

Authors: Susan Callahan, Anne Nolan, Katrin Schumann.
It was while in Canada a few years ago that I came across this book, while taking ‘time-out’ in a Borders book shop, Seattle's Best coffee in hand.

Mother’s Day is the US is at the beginning of May and is such a big deal there too, with books, gifts and ideas to keep Mom happy displayed in many, many stores.
It was this book that opened my eyes to the real sense of what Motherhood leaves us with (if we let it) – feeling undervalued!  This book steers you away from that, allowing you to know and believe that ‘taking time-out for you’ is not only acceptable, it’s essential for you to be the Mother your family deserve.
It was the title and concept of this book that led me to write an article for NCT Chorley & Leyland’s Award Winning Newsletter and later to start the webpage ‘Time Out for Mums’. Hopefully the site will grow to be popular and inspire many Mums :o)
