Motherhood Without Guilt
Being the Best Mother You can be and Feeling Great About It

No matter how hard you try, if you're a mom today you probably worry that you're not doing enough for your children, your spouse, your friends, your family, or yourself. You may question your decisions about working vs. staying at home, and agonize over keeping up with your housework or wrestle with negative feelings about children from time to time. You may have a nagging feeling that you don't measure up to your own or other's expectations.
In short, feeling guilty is pervasive among mothers; it just seems to come with the territory.
But now you can turn off those feelings of guilt. If you're like most moms, you really want to be a good mother, and you're doing a better job than you give yourself credit for:
- You don't have to be a good housekeeper or cook to be a great mom.
- Either working or staying at home can be a great choice and great for your kids.
- Your kids may not need everything from you that you think they do.
- Taking care of yourself can be good for the whole family.
- Your husband can make a good partner and a great parent
You're already a good mom; here's how to enjoy your children and your life even more. Just imagine ... motherhood, without guilt.
Read a sampling of Questions and Answers
How Mothers Feel
Is it awful of me that I was disappointed in the sex of my child?
Motherhood and Marriage
My husband misses how I used to care for him. I feel guilty that he is neglected, but what can I do when I feel too "nurtured out" myself?
Motherhood and Family
My kids have three sets of grandparents: my mother and her husband, my father and his wife, and my in-laws, and they all seem to be competitive about who is the best grandparent. How can I get them to behave themselves?
Motherhood and Friendship
I focus so much energy on my work and family I've allowed my relationships to slide. How can I avoid feeling totally friendless and still be an attentive wife and mother?
