Motherhood without Guilt: Being the Best Mother You Can Be and Feeling Great About It
Moms feel guilty about everything...
They think they're not doing enough for themselves, for their children and
for their spouses. They question their decisions about working vs. staying
at home. They agonize over keeping up with housework, struggle in their
relationship with their husband, wrestle with negative feelings about their
children from time to time and worry that they don't measure up to their own
or others' expectations.
In short, feeling guilty is pervasive among mothers; it just seems to come
with the territory. Motherhood without Guilt uses a question-and-answer
format to address all the issues that cause a mother to feel bad about her
mothering, and shows how to:
--Reconcile working vs. staying at home
--Be emotionally available to your kids in just the right way
--Take good care of yourself, too
--Create partnership in parenting with your husband
--Nurture friendships and get support from others
