Lela Davidson is a young mother who has her own opinions about child-rearing, motherhood, and life in general. She writes about what she knows best, the quest to raise a family in her unique way in the midst of our conformity culture.
My children are all raised and out of the house now, so I can't relate to all of the problems that mothers of this generation face today, but as a grandmother, I have observed that raising children has become even more complicated in today's world. One current problem that Lela tackles in her humorous book is the exorbitant birthday parties that seem to be the norm for youngsters these days.
My daughters tell me that when they were young they remember that I would read Erma Bombeck's books and laugh out loud. I have to admit that I did a little laughing out loud while reading Lela Davidson's book as well.
If you are a young mother and are losing your sense of humor about what's going on in your world of sibling rivalry, pets, camping, kids' sports, and even how to keep the romance alive in your marriage, pick up a copy of Blacklisted from the PTA and have yourself a good laugh.
The opinions stated in this post are my own. I was given a copy of Blacklisted from the PTA as a blog prize.
