Motherhood 101: A memoir of my experience as a newlywed juggling pregnancy/motherhood, marriage, work and a social life
If babies could talk, they would say their mother was God.
One of the miracles of the human story is positively the nurturing capabilities of mothers. Beyond carrying that pregnancy for nine months and eventually bringing it forth, mothers go through a whole complex regimen every day to sustain the fledgling human life while taking care of themselves and their home. No wonder some allude mystical powers to the process of childbirth.
But whether supernatural or superwoman, motherhood is an amazing passage that has kept mankind populating Planet Earth. And when one woman steps out to catalogue her own moments of indescribable joy and heart-wrenching pain, the result is this wonderful gift of a book.
Amma Agyeman-Prempeh’s work is based on a selfless narrative of the most intimate encounters of motherhood set in a cosmopolitan environment. In the midst of all the juggling, the triumphant twins of love and courage rise and rise.
Raising a child these days has become a heavy task that baffles many parents. The social changes and the pressures they exert on the family have left many parents totally helpless as to what to do to make the best out of their children. Understanding your child’s temperament will help you discover their talents and potentials, why they act the way they do, and how you can best relate to them. You will also know their strengths and weaknesses and what career opportunities await them. This book will enable you to guide your children in all areas of their lives.

The reader cannot help but be thrilled by how a mother – in the name of God – went to battle with and against science, eventually gifting to us a world-class professional.
Sometimes a medical journal, sometimes a family drama, sometimes a life-and-death page-turner, the episodes in this book involve diverse experts, hospitals across several countries, unusual insights on health as well as a redeeming grace of the highest order. This roller coaster lifesaving journey fortifies your resolve in your own particular struggle. When you finish The Unconventional Mother, the phrase ‘it is possible’ will taste different in your mouth.
Children are needy and dependent, and they know almost nothing about life. They function mostly on emotion rather than reason. They are simple, love without restriction and see the world as presented to them. Young children begin very early to internalize information which either encourages or discourages disclosure. This book attempts to highlight how actions and inactions of parents, teachers and significant others can make children optimise their potential and give their best to society or be a danger to themselves and to society in general.
In this current era, women have had to take up jobs to support the home, especially in roles formerly dominated by men. In order to juggle the responsibilities of work and motherhood, the need to assign some responsibilities to caregivers or nannies is gradually gaining grounds. This book explores the contemporary phenomenon of engaging nannies and domestic assistants as a component of contemporary parenting and in addition, shares some best practices on how to prepare to do so more effectively.
The book has extensive discussions on behavioral needs and developmental stages in children. It also captures the influence of technology and social media on children, effects of strained parental relationships on children and parenting children with special needs. It further touches on parenting in a world of changing sexual orientations.
This book is well researched and beneficial to parents, guardians and those planning to have children. It is a page turner and highly recommended to everyone.
