9780091954963: Good Mother, Bad Mother

A compelling, highly personal examination of contemporary motherhood from a top child care expert

Mothers today face relentless criticism and pressure. Breast or bottle? Work or stay at home? Routine or feeding-on-demand? The choices are infinite and at the heart of each question is the more controversial and divisive debate of what makes a good mother. Gina Ford offers an illuminating, moving, and thought-provoking study of this enigmatic question. Drawing on the experience of thousands of mothers, she has turned her attention to the women charged with bringing up the next generation. She addresses the challenges of contemporary motherhood and fervently argues that these awe-inspiring women seldom receive the support, respect, and admiration they deserve. And for the first time, in a candid, personal account, Gina interweaves stories from her own childhood, revealing how her relationship with her own mother has shaped the choices she has made. Any woman who has ever doubted her capabilities as a mother will find comfort and reassurance in the insights of the woman whose books have been justly described as a "godsend."

Review:

"This elegant study supplies both insight and encouragement for women at all stages. Ford's strengthening voice is welcome. It stands outside of the more logistics-based advice on parenting issues."  –Library Journal
