Are you a mean mom? Author and mother of four Joanne Kraft gives a courageous call to moms not to shirk their duty, but to be the kind of mom their kids need. The kind of mean she refers to isn’t about abuse, but about setting appropriate boundaries and loving your kids enough to discipline them.
Joanne Kraft is a mom of four and the author of The Mean Mom’s Guide to Raising Great Kids and Just Too Busy—Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical. Joanne has been a guest on Focus on the Family, FamilyLife Today, CBN and her articles have been published in Today’s Christian Woman, P31 Woman, In Touch, Thriving Family, Parentlife and more. Joanne and her husband, Paul, took a God-sized leap of faith and moved their family from California to Tennessee, where they’ve happily traded soy milk and arugula for sweet tea and biscuits.
