What’s a good mother?
One who’s loving, loved, gives her children what they need? Does it matter if she stays at home or goes to work, is married or not? Is in her 20s or beyond 40? If her kids are happy? If she is happy?
Women wrestle with society’s – and their own ideals of motherhood. What she discovered: The answers to the question of what makes a good mom are loaded with almost as many opinions and judgment as there are mothers. I found that there’s no absolute definition of the perfect mother. But trying to set my own goals for what I want to be as a mom has helped put the ideal of perfection into perspective.
Have you struggled with these issues?
Do you think it’s tougher these days for mother to measure up?
What makes you feel most like a good mom?
What is the one thing you’d most like to change about yourself as a mother?
I would love to hear your thoughts!!!
