Mommy Needs a Raise, by Sarah Parshall Perry

Oh joy! Here’s another mothering book, jammed with hilarious anecdotes…very well-written. It amazes me how many moms must really struggle with what other people do, what other mothers think, what people think of them, etc. Many moms must set their own standards impossibly and unrealistically high.

Because book, after mothering book, seems to be always about this. These books seem to amount to one long permission slip. They say to moms, “It’s okay to be who you are.” There must be a great call for this message and this book brings it…once again.

Please share a comment with your favorite mothering book title, or tell me if you struggle with meeting unrealistic external standards and how that affects you.
