In this Do Especially PDFEPUB #230 look at mothering Naomi Stadlen draws on many years' work with hun. I found the goal of this book to articulate what mothers do when it may appear to outsiders that they do little to nothing very admirable and largely well done I think that this is an important book for vocalizing what mothers particularly mothers of infants and young children for this book does not deal with mothering over a lifetime do for it offers reassurance to mothers who feel as though they get nothing done all day that they are doing a great deal of mothering without taking it into account and should therefore berate themselves less Unfortunately I found a number of flaws with this book First the author made generalizations about how a mother should or is expected to feel toward her child without giving much allowance to mothers who may feel differently Second the author explicitly says that her book is not a prescription of what mothers should do but rather a description of what mothers do yet she repeatedly offers her precise ideas of what good mothering entails take sleep training for example Third the author seems to completely disregard outside influences or other social and structural influences or restraints when it comes to childrearing; she even states that it is the mother's fault when a child acts out because the mother didn't attend to his needs uickly enough when he was younger I certainly appreciate Stadlen's attempt to materialize the overlooked and invisible value of the relationship between mother and child 126 and challenge the consistent denigration of genuine mothering 294; yet I ask what is genuine mothering but this book leaves much to be desired
