About Jodi & Judy
Jodi Silverman and her mom, Judy Brown, both live just outside of Philadelphia. Silverman, married for twenty-three years, has two children and a fluffy cockapoo. Brown, married for thirty-five years, has two children, three stepchildren, and eight grandchildren.
When Jodi’s oldest child, Ellie, went to college, she was inspired to write a mom’s guide to medicine to help her daughter adjust to life a way from home. The idea to create a journal for other mom’s was born and she invited her mom to coauthor this project with her. To find out more about Jodi, click here.
“Jodi and Judy did such a great job with this clever little book. I don’t have kids of my own, but I do have stepdaughters through my husband. Two of them are in college and this book is such a terrific way of helping them when I can’t be there. Make sure you buy a book for EACH one of your kids because you personalize a book for each child. I love the cute illustrations, but most especially I love the “Tips” sections because as parents you know we have a lot of tips to share for sure.”
-Heather Moran, Step Mother of two college aged kids
“What a fun loving gentle way to help your children interdependently succeed when they launch into the most exciting time of their lives. An awesome way for them to be independent while still having mom gently sitting on your shoulder ( or bookshelf) full of her wisdom. And not to much is disclosed in the book, so yes they will still call home.” -Andrea Rosenthal, MOM
“What an AMAZING idea!!! I can’t wait to give this book to my daughter when she leaves for college!!! This book is organized so well — so i can easily add my tips and my daughter will easily be able to find the information she needs. I am sure this will be a well-used resource for years to come. And — the size is nice and compact. All in all – a GREAT book/journal!!!” -Beth Joseph, MOM
“Every young adult should have a copy of this book. It is a wonderful “2nd mother” for college aged children and older. Fun and easy to read, yet serious and full of great information!” -Jill Weiss, Mom of 4 amazing sons!
