How do you know if you’re a good mother? In today’s age of over sharing, people are constantly putting their parenting skills on display through photos, status updates and mommy blogs, celebrity moms are all over magazines and the classic pregnancy guide book What To Expect When You’re Expecting is now a movie with famous faces holding babies at all ages. The Good Mother Myth: Redefining Motherhood to Fit Reality by Avital Norman Nathman has your back. Through a collection of essays it “dismantles the social media-fed notion of what it means to be a ‘good mother.'” Covering panic-inducing parenting moments, dealing with the competition of other moms and handling those terrible twos, each essay “takes a realistic look at motherhood and provides a platform for real voices and raw stories, each adding to the narrative of motherhood we don’t tend to see in the headlines or on the news.”
