Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lynn | 2/14/2014

    " I was hoping this would be more of a discussion of the Bad Mother/Good Mother labels...how they came to be, how they affect parenting styles (and therefore how my peers' children are being raised), etc. However, this book is more straightforward memoir. Waldman focuses on the portion of her adult life when she is raising four children and certainly touches on the ways that she may be considered to be a "bad" or "good" mother in the context of current views on the subject, but it is not the primary focus of the book. "

    " Hilarious, thought-provoking and really grounded. I think this is a great read for anyone with kids, anyone who's thinking about having them or who is in a cohabitational relationship. "

    " Love, love, loved this book. There really are parents out there like me..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Renee | 11/17/2013

    " The book started out really strong in making me think about how we, as a society, relate to the choices which women make regarding motherhood. I felt that the author lost her focus towards the middle of the book and starting simply sharing the values that she's decided to instill in her children. "
