9780061536113: Mama Rock's Rules: Ten Lessons for Raising a Houseful of Successful Children

Rose Rock—child advocate, educator, and mother of ten-plus children, including comedian Chris Rock—shares her heartfelt and no-nonsense advice on parenting

Uber-mom Rose Rock raised ten children and seventeen foster children. She did it by never shying away from hard conversations and by not being afraid to present strong ideas about boundaries, discipline, choices, and consequences. In short, Rose Rock tells it like it is.

In Mama Rock's Rules, Rock shares the funny and highly practical lessons she learned both as a parent and an educator, while offering strategies for teaching children to be self-reliant. Her advice—delivered with a dose of wit and homespun humor—will inspire you to teach your kids right, whether your brood is one child or ten.

About the Author:

Rose Rock has worked as a teacher and has operated preschools and day care centers in New York City and South Carolina for the past seventeen years. She is a sought-after speaker and is also the host of the weekly radio program The Mom Show in Myrtle Beach, SC.



Valerie Graham a graduate of Harvard University, is a writer, magazine editor, and society columnist. The mother of three children and the grandmother of four, she lives in Myrtle Beach, SC.

From AudioFile:

Rose Rock, mother of comic Chris Rock, successfully raised 10 children and 17 foster children in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, where, as Chris says, "Four out of five black men are either dead, in jail, or making a rap CD." How did she do it? Rose gives 10 rules for child rearing, based on how she ran her own household. Formerly a professional educator and now the host of a weekly radio program, Rose offers advice that is clear and no-nonsense. She believes, for example, that children look to parents not to be friends, but to be models for "doing right." Her narration is full of personal anecdotes, and her clarity and advice are well worth a listen for any parent. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
