How Society Moulds and Constrains Mothers

Motherhood has changed. Today, social, lifestyle and economic shifts have fractured their rigid norms of marriage and maternity which governed the lives of previous generations of women. Yet at the same time caring for children, mothering itself has become more complex, more guilt-ridden and more problematic than ever.

Exposing the myths and challenging the rhetoric, this book is the first real attempt to rethink our concept of mothering and its responsibilities. By revealing how we have arrived at a particular model of motherhood, it offers a new approach to raising children. One where the needs of mothers, fathers and others are more evenly balanced with those of the child.
