From leading parenting expert Alyson Schafer, Breaking the Good Mom Myth breaks down personal and cultural myths about motherhood while empowering mothers everywhere

As a psychotherapist and parenting expert, Alyson Schafer has worked with a great many mothers who, in the quest to be "good mothers," have ended up on the doorstep of despair. Alyson is a fresh-fifty suburbanite and working mother of two, and she can speak to these issues both personally and professionally. This book explains the psycho-social phenomena of how each person creates their own unique "good mother myth" and then examines why these myths are not only faulty, but could in fact lead to poor parenting, marital disaster and individual crisis.

Alyson Schafer offers up ideas for how the reader can reject her current "stinky thinking" and instead adopt a more useful outlook to improve her situation. The story arc allows readers to identify and then project how their parenting may be unknowingly going off the rails. The goal of this book is to provide parents with some basic education and a means of self-discovery. Readers uncover their own good mother myths and are given an eye-opening glimpse into potential issues to challenge their thinking. A great sense of empowerment is restored as mothers become better able to resist the pulls of their personal and cultural myths, and instead begin parenting with greater intention and in ways that are more suitable to proper child guidance.
