"Raising 8 boys and 2 girls is the perfect place to learn effective parenting, and Donna Baer lets readers know how anyone can build a strong, happy family like hers. By choosing at-home motherhood over a high-flying career, she challenged the cultural supposition that large families are inconvenient, expensive, and lots of trouble. Instead she defends her choice by inviting us into her busy, joy-filled life, answering the 10 questions she’s most frequently asked. No subject is off limits, and readers get to peek into her closets, watch her discipline, learn how to keep 12 stomachs satisfied, and much more. After reading Donna’s book, I wish I could start raising my own family all over again!"
