Overview

An important look at motherhood and family dynamics in the 21st century-by the national spokesperson of Mothers & More.

Kristin Maschka, past president of Mothers & More, a national organization with more than 140 chapters across the country, shines a spotlight on the complex issues mothers face-at work, in their homes, their lives, and with their partners? and shows how the hidden assumptions that society, the media, public policy, and women themselves hold about motherhood can sabotage a mother's happiness.

Maschka weaves together her own story, anecdotes from mothers all over the country, and a deep knowledge of history and society to offer mothers a comforting, often funny read that helps them see themselves and the world around them in a whole new way. At the same time she provides specific actions women can take today to remodel motherhood to live the lives they always thought they would.

    The Guide to Happy Parenting

    An absolutely enlightening book and I recommend it to all parents I know. I found the book to have all the information of a textbook, but read like a story. Maschka comprehensively covers the invisible cultural assumptions that can make being a modern parent exhausting and draining. If you've ever felt like you've traveled back to the 1950s in your roles as husband and wife, read why and what to do about it in this book!
