Guest Host: Susan Page

Just about anywhere a mother turns these days, she’s bombarded with images of ‘the perfect mother’ and how best to raise children. Unfortunately, many mothers now feel it is only through perfection that they will find contentment. "The Mommy Myth," by Susan J. Douglas and Meredith W. Michaels, examines the idealization of motherhood and debunks the myth of the ‘perfect mother.’
