Would you like to be a happier mom?
I’ve asked my friend, Arlene Pellicane, to give you some insights from her wonderful new book, 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom. Read on and comment at the end of the post for a chance to win her great new resource for any mom.

When I asked moms what made them unhappy, I got answers like:
“I hate it when I have to repeat myself again and again.”
“I’m constantly yelling at my kids about their ‘forgotten’ chores.”
“My kids don’t do what I ask. They make excuses and argue with me about things they’re supposed to do every day.”
I can certainly relate to these frustrations. My husband James and I were harping on our three kids constantly: “Hang your backpack in the closet.” “Put your dish in the sink.” “Please help set the table.” He was tired of the constant nagging about basic household duties and he began to brainstorm about the solution. Lean in moms. The crazy plan James came up with worked like a charm and it all began with a dollar.
