When Sheila McCraith realized her handyman had caught her screaming at her four sons, she knew she needed to change.

“I was beyond mortified by my behavior,” she tells PEOPLE. “I could no longer accept that yelling at my kids wasn’t a problem.”

The next morning, McCraith woke up with a plan: Go 365 days without raising her voice. But she quickly realized that keeping calm throughout the day centered around one very big obstacle — tantrums!

To keep herself accountable, the mom-of-four set up The Orange Rhino Challenge, where she shared her stories and sought support from fellow frustrated parents.

Fast forward one year later and McCraith completed her goal — and her family couldn’t be happier.

The Glow: An Inspiring Guide to Stylish Motherhood, Julie BowenKelly Stuart

Motherhood is many things. It’s beautiful. Amazing. Hilarious at times.

It’s also heart-wrenching. Extremely challenging (!!!). And sometimes very, very dirty (We’ve all had those days which require not one, but two baths for everyone involved).

The Glow: An Inspiring Guide to Stylish Motherhood, a new coffee table book featuring intimate interviews with fashionable, modern moms, captures all those things and more.

When authors Violet Gaynor and Kelly Stuart — the creators of the popular lifestyle website TheGlow.com — met with some of the most stylish and hard-working moms out there to get their take on everything from home décor to marriage, they were inspired by what they saw.

As a child, award-winning actress and author Julianne Moore may not have been a fan of her signature freckles and red hair, but little did she know they’d end up being the inspiration for her children’s book character, Freckleface Strawberry.

And now, the Game Change star has launched her second kid’s app called Freckleface Strawberry Dreamtime Playtime, which is based on Moore’s best-selling book series.

Designed for the iPad and iPhone, it’s a math-building skills game that lets kids count, sort, and match with Freckleface Strawberry herself.

“When I was developing the second app, I really wanted [to focus on] skills for children like counting, sorting and matching. Basic educational skills that can be put into a fun game for kids,” Moore told PEOPLE.

From family trips to the library to promoting literacy programs in schools, it’s no secret that Jennifer Garner is a big fan of instilling a love of books at an early age.

That’s why the mom-of-three is excited about the launch of little BLUEPRINT, a line of kid-friendly reads created by her good pal, Katherine Eskovitz.

“She was one of my first mom friends. Our kids went to preschool together,” Garner, 41, tells PEOPLE.

Eskovitz originally penned the stories — which are designed to help children cope with life challenges including divorce and death — for her own children.

However when Garner got wind of the project, she quickly put in an order for her little ones, including daughters Violet, 8, and Seraphina, 5 next month, and son Samuel, 22 months.
