The Hidden Feelings of Motherhoodby Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Phyllis Klaus, Marshall H. Klaus
Motherhood is often portrayed as a time of cooing, cuddling, and powerful feelings of love. But motherhood can also bring with it feelings of rage, powerlessness, and frustration. Mothering is a job with awesome responsibilities and not a lot of respect or support. In exploring the darker side of being a mom, this book helps mothers cope more effectively with their negative feelings. The author discusses the unspoken factors that lead to stress, depression, anger, loss of intimacy with a partner, and burnout. She also covers the special challenges of mothers who have survived abuse, mothering after the loss of a child, and parenting difficult children.
