Motherhood shakes you up. It knocks your socks off. It calls into question everything you thought you knew.
Motherhood has stages. The intoxicating and overwhelming sensations of new motherhood give way to deeper wisdom and maturity… A mother in progress is transformed into a mother in action, a woman whose behaviors are more confident and refined.
In this eloquent and profound odyssey of motherhood, author and family therapist Tzippora Price probes the signposts along the path of becoming an intelligent and caring mother.
We observe how a mother can be available to her children without being intrusive, how a simple cup of tea can help build an enduring marriage, and how women can cope with the empty nest.
Exquisitely articulate and courageously honest, we are drawn into the author’s world as she deals with a child’s existential crisis over the death of a pet, the trials of secondary infertility, and the paradox of the ADHD label.
With poignant parenting moments as the family dons oxygen masks in a malfunctioning plane or as husband and wife flee a fire while on vacation, Mother in Action overflows with opportunity to help you transcend your self-imposed limits and become the mother you always dreamed of being.
