Book Review – Keep Calm And Mommy On by Tanu Shree Singh

You instantly know the difference, when a book comes from a psychologist cum a Mommy. And ‘Keep Calm And Mommy On’ is that book.

This book focuses on issues that come accrued with kids growing up and also growing up a mind of their own. With examples from her own life as a mother of two teenagers and other stories from fellow parents, Dr. Tanu Shree Singh, insists that it’s a cruel world out there and if we want to protect our kids from getting carried away or misguided, then there is only one way out. COMMUNICATE. Be it issues related to religion, intolerance, sexuality or crimes, children need to be provided with a balanced perspective of these ugly realities and thus the author insists that we as parents should play the important role of the information bearers for our kids. Lest they may find information from biased or extremist sources and develop a skewed view of things.

Among the several parenting self-help books that I have read for AtoZ Challenge, this is the only one that talks about bringing kids face to face with the concept of Death. Such is the extent of rationality the author brings along with this book.

I liked the writing style of the author very much, with right amount of humor sprinkled through her stories in her home. The conversations shared between her and the kids are very heart-warming and also thought provoking. As a mother of two boys, I identify with Dr. Tanu Shree’s concerns when she says that it is a task to bring up boys who respect women and are empowering specially when our household is not the silo where the kids stay. With involuntary exposure and various external influences, the author reinstates the significance of her first and most important parenting lesson – COMMUNICATE

I guess this book is helpful for parents of little older kids like mine too as self-help parenting books are always needed when you have teens and tweens at home. Will surely check it out.

I read the back story to this book about how it was conceptualized and that’s really different. This is probably going to be on my TBR once Tuneer gets into his teens because it gets more relatable then.

Nice review. It must come in handy, if they are inclined to read, parents of preteen and teen aged kids.

Looks like this book would be more helpful when my gals are a bit grown up…in their teen years.

An author with the right mix of academics, psychology, and practical experience. It sure is a good read for mothers, my elder sister recommended this to me a while ago as she finished reading when she was struggling hard to deal with her early teen kiddo
