Motherhood Reconsidered

I had a conversation with a friend about the challenges of motherhood and the culturally unacknowledged conflicts a lot of us have when the very next day there was a piece in the Utne Reader on the same topic (149 Sept. Oct. 2008 Bundle of Trouble by Robin W. Simon). They don't put the piece on their website but it is available for purchase throught the original journal Contexts (The Joys of Parenthood, Reconsidered by Robin W. Simon). I would try your local library for either journal.

The article discusses issues such as studies that show parents of grown children have no greater well being than adults who never had children. So why did I have the munchkin?
