Hi Dr. Laura,
I just want to thank you for your books. I just read The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands... And In Praise of Stay at Home Moms... And Parenthood by Proxy.
Dr. Laura, I've been at home with my 8-month-old since he was born. I felt so stupid about it, given that everyone looks at this with shame and pressures me to work, including both my parents, sister, and husband. My dad said it was imperative for me to find employment immediately. Right now we're surviving fine with my husband's teacher salary.
I just want to say thank you!!!! Because you are the first person I know who accepts moms like us. I really thought I was alone. I was even embarrassed to be seen with my boy. Thanks to you, I feel more confident about my life.
I've turned my whole attitude around since I read your books. My husband and I have improved our relationship given that the word divorce was spoken just in July.
Thanks so much. You're my hero! I still face issues, but I'm following your advice and really hoping for the best.
