Tough Break! Britney and Jamie Lynn Spear’s Mom’s Parenting Book Delayed

Talk about a tough break for us! Lynne Spears – famous mom of Britney and Jamie Lynn’s book on parenting has been delayed indefinitely. It’s a serious blow to all of us who wanted to learn more about how to raise great kids. “The book is delayed indefinitely. It’s delayed, not cancelled,” says a spokeswoman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles. It had been scheduled for a spring 2008 release and was put on hold last week, says
the rep. On Tuesday, news hit that 16-year-old Jamie Lynn is pregnant with her boyfriend’s child. Sorry Spears fans. It apparently will be some time before you learn those fantastic child rearing tips…



  1. Thomas Nelson?

    That is the only part of the story that shocks me.  Of course some crazy pop culture publisher would offer up anything from the Spears family.  But for Thomas Nelson to touch it with a ten foot pole…that stinks!

  2. That is funny Chris!
    A parent can do it all right, and still feel like a failure. I always took the scripture about raising up a child in what is right “and when he becomes a man he will return to it” as meaning that if you do a good job as a parent of instilling Biblical teaching your child will turn into a man or woman of God. But the promise is that they will return to it. Before we judge lets remember that if they are returning, they are leaving first. Not every child deviates far, but they will deviate. I am not saying anything about the book, the mom, the daughters, etc. I am just saying that if we are parents, we must be humble on this one… We just don’t know how our little princes and princesses are going to adjust to growing up – even if we have done our best to instill Godly ways. We can still trust God’s word, and holdfast that they will return.

  3. One previous poster said, "I am through with this site."  She would not elaborate.  Could it be that she was "through with" the often "whine and cheese party" that frequently crops up around tabloid topics.

  4. I have a brother-in-law who had four kids.  One was killed joy riding in a stolen car.  One is in prison for eight years.  One is single and pregnant, the youngest at 18 is a ninth grade drop out, unemployed and has not been seen in a month.

    Guess what?  I don't want his parenting tips either.  I have two teens and a grade schooler.  I would rather hear from someone –like Phil! –who has raised great kids in a Christian family and seen them turn out well adjusted and living for God.

  5. Trian up a child in the way "he" should go. This is refering to the uniqueness of your child or helping your child find God's plan for them.  It is not sending them to church and or Christian school with the guarentee from God that they will return to serve Jesus. All these things are fine but many parents try to mold thier kids into what they want or what they think they should be. Second Brittney's mom has no business writting a book on parenting.  At Brittneys age if anything good stuck Brittney should be respecting those she is supposed to love.
