Synopsis

Synopsis

Motherhood can be one of the most intense and transformative experiences of a woman's life. While there are many books that offer the "do's and don'ts" of effective parenting, few offer guidance on navigating the tumultuous inner experience of being a mother, with all its joy, pain, change, and uncertainty. This collection of writing by psychologists, poets, novelists, spiritual teachers, and everyday moms explores the rich, transformative journey of motherhood.

   • 

Poet and novelist Louise Erdrich captures the sheer wonder and awe of early motherhood.
   • 

Self-described "hip momma" Ariel Gore reflects on the challenges of dealing with her daughter's adolescent rebellion.
   • 

Journalist Joan Peters highlights the rise of the "Power Mom" and the risks of overparenting to our children and ourselves.
   •  <p align="left">Zen teacher Cheri Huber shares a spiritual perspective: sometimes it's us parents who need a "time out" so that we can be more fully present and loving with our children.


Previously published in hardcover under the title Your Children Will Raise You.
