Stone Mountain author’s new storybook highlights sacrifices of breadwinner moms
STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — Author Tracy Neal celebrates hardworking mothers through her new kids’ storybook, “That’s My SuperMommy,” which is set for nationwide release this week.
Through her latest children’s book, Neal is determined to give a reassuring child’s voice to the current phenomenon of changing gender roles in the modern household. Women all over the world are, more often than not, becoming the breadwinners in most households. Not only do they deal with the professional and social pressures of their changing socioeconomic roles, they also have to deal with their spouses or significant others’ reactions as well as family members’ reactions to them working outside the home. Finally and most importantly, they have to deal with the overwhelming guilt of being successful women while raising their children. They are constantly trying to prove to themselves and to others that they are worthy, capable and loving mothers.
“That’s My SuperMommy” provides a child’s perspective and helps ease some of the undue “mommy guilt” pressure that working mothers often put on themselves.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
