The Feminine Mistake

WOW. It's been a long time since I've seen Amazon reviews this bad. The author had a strong start and then slowly, one by one, the women started slamming her. Check it out here. I have not read the book nor do I intend to but I'm curious if anyone else has and what you thought, thanks.

Separately and from the book "Women Who Changed The World:"

Chapter 50 (our final installment!)

I haven't read the book, but I did read an article about it and posted my thoughts on it in my journal if you would like to read them. http://journals.aol.com/jillannemarie/HousewifeLife/#Entry1649

Hi, Jill

Thanks for your comments and for sharing your great post on "The Simple Housewifes Contribution To The World."

To set the record straight, I don't have kids but not because I never wanted them. Life just did not give me that gift. I love kids ... my sister has four and I adore every one of them. She was a stay-at-home Mom whereas I am the serial entrepreneur.

I have always admired both my Mom and my sister for staying home when their kids were young and needed them and had they both not done this, we may not have turned out as well as I think we have in life.

Yet, we all have to find our places in life. What works for one, may not for another but what we cannot do is enforce our way of thinking or being on others. Live your best life, that's all you can do.

More power to you on the love and commitment you have made to your family. I hope it continues to bring you tremendous joy and satisfaction.

Warm regards,
