Reviewer: Deidre Pitney
By Deidre Pitney, Courier News, January 14, 2003, On-the-Run section. Natalie Gahrmann has written a book you'll want to put down. She designed it that way--to inspire readers to re-evaluate their busy lives, and then put that inspiration into action. Succeeding as a Super Busy Parent breaks out life's many challenges into easy-to-read sections designed for creating a work/life balance, reducing stress, creating and enhancing relationships, and planning for success.

Reviewer: Beth
Natalie's book not helped me live up to my potential as a parent, but helped me as an individual. This book enabled me to recognize my needs and those needs of my family. I used what I learned in this book to help my children develop the skills that they will use in everyday life. The book is easy to read and understand and offers great ideas that can be used everyday. Every person in my family positively benefited from me reading this book!
