Within each new mother lives an ideal that–like the perfect house and husband–is doomed to fall short. The "good mother myth"–an ideal that parents create for themselves–says psychotherapist and parent coach Alyson Schäfer, is the sort of widely held misconception that ultimately sabotages people’s efforts at becoming the best parents they can be. In her eye-opening account of how moms, the media, and our current culture foster this condition, Breaking the Good Mom Myth shows readers, through personal stories, anecdotes, and timely lessons, how to become a more empowered and confident person and parent. --- from the publisher
