Présentation de l'éditeur

In an era of mommy blogs, Pinterest, and Facebook, The Good Mother Myth dismantles the social media–fed notion of what it means to be a “good mother.” This collection of essays takes a realistic look at motherhood and provides a platform for real voices and raw stories, each adding to the narrative of motherhood we don’t tend to see in the headlines or on the news.

From tales of mind-bending, panic-inducing overwhelm to a reflection on using weed instead of wine to deal with the terrible twos, the honesty of the essays creates a community of mothers who refuse to feel like they’re in competition with others, or with the notion of the ideal mom—they’re just trying to find a way to make it work. With a foreword by Christy Turlington Burns and a contributor list that includes Jessica Valenti, Sharon Lerner, Soraya Chemaly, Amber Dusick, and many more, this remarkable collection seeks to debunk the myth and offer honest perspectives on what it means to be a mother.

This novel is a must for any expectant Mothers!

This book really hit hard for me, as a young mother of Two autistic children, you are constantly told how to raise them, what you need to do everyday so you don’t screw them up. My son as a newborn would not breast feed the guilt and anguish that I felt as a new mother was horrible, the nurses wouldn’t let me give up and it wasn’t happening, after a week in hospital and a stint in Neonatal ward I told them I was leaving and I was bottle feeding him my breast milk, you would think that I offered to chop off his head. I cried for weeks over it.

Any mother will find parenting hard, with today’s pressures on being the perfect mother, only organic, non gluten, non dairy blah blah, no lollies, TV, or playing games. It is no wonder that mothers are falling apart all over the place.

I would take my two children to psychologists, dietitians, speech therapists, occupational therapists and more, just to try to understand what they are thinking and what I can do to make it better, here’s the kicker I should have just followed my instincts because I am also Autistic. But these are professionals right? Sure but they go by the book.

I am not saying they don’t help anyone they were all wonderful and helped me through some tough times, but later on as they grew older, I found that the stress of managing appointments pulling the kids out of kindy or school to travel over and hour or more to go to the appointments. I eventually gave up.

My kids now go to kindy and school, and I work five days a week, our house is a lot more calmer than ever because I am not stressed the kids don’t have added stress and I figured they are alive, they are growing, they are loved, they eat, they sing, they talk, they play they are healthy and happy. so what if they watch TV to help them calm before bed, or my son only eats bland boring foods and not colorful veggies. I will never give up trying to challenge them to try new things but in the end everyone is healthy and happy why stress?.

This book is full of essays from real mothers that have let go of the good mother myth. It opens your eyes to the fact that no one is perfect and the added pressure and stress on new mothers is terrible it is OK to let go, and be a good enough parent.

I'm a stay at home mother of four. Basic, married, healthy kids, middle class, etc. I wondered if I would be able to relate to the stories inside, as the writers of the essays are a diverse crowd. I could, and I loved this book! More than once, I felt myself nodding along with the stories. This isn't my normal genre of books, so I can't compare it to others in this category, but I found it a wonderful read and perfect for this time of year, when we reflect on our lives and choices - you know, new year/new you stuff.

I found The Good Mother Myth to be informative, eye opening, funny, and at times brought me to tears. No matter what type of mother you are, you will find yourself within this book. Whether you are a stay at home mom, working mom, lesbian mom, postpartum depressed mom, or a mom with physical or mental health issues.
I definitely found many essays of the book that I could relate to. My favorite essay was by Amber Dusick. Oh my goodness! It was SO funny!
I think this book is a must read for ALL mothers. 5 stars

As I began to read the Good Mother Myth, I was in .. hook, line and sinker

I enjoyed reading each and every essay included. I often found myself shaking my head saying yes, I can so relate.

The essays are so honest ... the women's stories included were heartfelt, real accounts of measuring up.
As a mother of two, I have had my own personal struggles of feeling as though I didn't quite reach the line of what a Good Mother is ... similar to my 6 year year old who has only a few more inches to grow until he can ride the bumper cars at the local amusement park. But, for mothers, there is no waiting or infinite time to grow. We feel the need to reach and exceed the expectations put on us in the future.

I appreciate all of the contributions made to make this book possible, and as I sat in my christmas tree lit room holding my phone's flashlight to read each word, I enjoyed my solo time and the book as my companion during the early morning light. I was sad when I finished reading, but used this time in the mornings to follow to reflect. I reflected on the good, the bad and the ugly of my early motherhood days ... I was flying by the seat of my pants with no guidelines on how to make it work. But I figured it out ... and every day as a mother, I figure it out and I am so happy that most days are glorious .... but there are moments that creep in where I second guess everything .... it was a wonderful reminder that I am not alone. The collections of essays remind me of the bond that mothers have ... we just need to let those expectations and judgements pass to see that we are all making the most of what we have ....

Thank you Avital for bringing this book to fruition and sharing it with the world.

I will pass along my copy to a friend and encourage others to get theirs to give The Good Mother Myth a read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic for parents and people who know parents! 19 décembre 2013
Par Katie Klabusich - Publié sur
I am not a mother. I am, however, an aunt and a best friend and a confidante. The essays in this book spoke to me and to my close network of perfectly imperfect moms. And dads! This is going on my list of must-buy gifts for new parents and anyone who wants to understand how the Good Mother Myth affects all of us (and trust me, it does).
Eloquent, entertaining, at times irreverent -- the short pieces in this collection are perfect for those without a ton of time to read and/or commutes to endure. I learned a lot and laughed out loud, causing fellow subway riders to sneak a peak at the book title. Superbly edited for inclusivity, expanse of experience and uniqueness of voice. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in ages.
