Molly Bowen wrote Mommy Lawyer to teach her children about her career but, more importantly, to give herself and other mommy lawyers a tool to help children be more understanding and proud of the fact that they have a working mother.
After taking the time to teach them about her career through Mommy Lawyer, Molly discovered that her kids more supportive and less disappointed when she occasionally missed a special day at school or didn’t make it home in time to tuck them in. Mommy Lawyer not only provides children with a basic understanding of what lawyers do, it helps children see their working mother’s career in a more positive light.
If you’re a mommy lawyer trying to balance it all, Molly hopes this book will empower you and your family to engage about your career – and the challenges that come with it – in an effective and beneficial way.
Mommy Lawyer is the first of a series of children’s books dedicated to developing a more compassionate and supportive relationship between working parents and their children.
