Moms of Boys

Internet Meeting Place

This Website is for mothers of boys because moms who have sons need support, whether they have one son or multiple sons. Yet, the Moms of Boys (MOB) Website is especially for those moms who are outnumbered by males in their own home.

Lost in a world of bathroom humor, sports, and Mt. Everest-sized piles of laundry, moms often lose their identity as a woman and their sanity as a human being. Moms of Boys have long forgotten what it’s like to go to a ‘girls’ movie or to the theatre or ballet or to have time to paint their toenails or even shave their legs.

Since there is strength in numbers in fighting the effects of testosterone in a household, it’s time for mothers of boys to unite!

Moms in Mid-Life!!

A special page of information and humor for older moms (of which Sharon is one) is now on this site.  This page is for moms who have a child after the age of 35 - either their first child, or like in Sharon's case - another child after having other children earlier in life.  Or for those who've adopted later in life.  The page includes informational links for - ahem - older moms, as well as some humorous writings from Sharon on the subject. This is also the topic of Sharon's next book
