Is "good enough" good enough?

Our resident pediatrician, Dr. Adesman, on the Parenting Community posted this interesting article I wanted to share with you.

I just read an interesting column on parenting in Newsweek by Julia Baird entitled "Lowering the Bar: When bad mothers give us hope". (http://www.newsweek.com/id/237526

The column raises the question of whether modern-day parents are expecting too much from -- and giving too much of -- themselves. Julia Baird writes: "Today, women no longer need to escape their families to work or be happy -- now they need to escape their own unrealistic expectations of what a good mother is". She continues: "Oddly, the more involved we are, the more guilty we have become".

For the rest of the article click on the parenting link above.
Happy Friday Ladies!
