Sarah Parshall Perry in her new book, “Mommy Needs a Raise book coverMommy Needs a Raise” published by Revell gives us (Because Quitting’s Not an Option).

From the Back Cover:  Um, excuse me, but . . . do these children come with dental?

Sarah Parshall Perry knew that raising kids would be different from climbing the corporate ladder. But she wasn’t ready for just how different. Wasn’t a job just a job? And what was that on her shirt? Sarah left the corporate world with a plan to win at mothering and was downright blindsided. Nothing went as planned, everything was foreign, and her bosses didn’t always understand her value to the organization.

With her signature wit, lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mommy Sarah says what all of us are thinking when we trade annual reports for homework help and sleepless nights. Sarah invites you to laugh alongside her in the “Are you kidding me?!” moments that come with the job of growing people. Crossing the divide between “employee” and “mother” is hard. But thankfully, it’s also hilarious.

This book isn’t just her story. It’s your story. The story of every mother who gives up one thing to get something better–and ends up finding out what she’s worth along the way.

One day it was official the doctor informed you that you were pregnant. That little bundle is different from anything out there in the corporate world. There is no training just whatever you picked up from your mother and family and friends. Sarah Parshall Perry knows about parenting. And she is nice enough to share her experiences with us. If you are a parent then, I believe, this book will be a resource for you. A way to identify with the issues you are facing and see that when it happened to Ms. Perry she was able to find some humor in the situation. Perhaps you will too.
