Who Decides What Makes a Good Mother?
I thought this book by Miriam Peskowitz might be of interest to some of our readers. It focuses on the debate between working and staying at home with your children. One thing I found interesting is that the author tends to blames the media for the argument that working moms and stay at home moms don't accept one another. In some cases this might be true, but for the most part, mothers tend to value other mothers figuring they are doing the best the best job they can. Don't we all want what is best for our children in the end? Peskowitz supports this argument with plenty of real stories, which makes for an interesting and quick read.
Also on the topic, here is a New York Times article from yesterday.
