"It's not easy being a mom... or an adult wanting to live in a perfectly controlled environment....but filled with drama n people who push your buttons.
It was like Karen was wearing my shoes at the most difficult times. Encouraging words. Find peace. Worth reading!!

— Sandy Pandy
"First-time author Karen Gibson brings to the table her experience as a therapist, a mom, a daughter and a wife in her debut book, Mama’s Gotta Let Go: How To Let Go Without Losing Your Sanity. In this book, she takes readers along with her on her journey towards calm, confident and effective parenting.

Her advice goes beyond parenting, however, and can be useful to anyone who has a hard time letting life happen without beating themselves up for not doing more or doing the wrong thing.

Karen’s story is one that many (most?) parents can relate to - wanting to protect your child against all harm and ensure the best possible life for them. However, she learned the hard way that sometimes you need to let go in order to let your children learn about life the hard way because that’s what will actually be best for them - and YOU - in the long run.

Along the way, she gives good advice and practical suggestions for parents looking to achieve a guilt-free, calm, supportive but not controlling relationship with their child. ~
