A good introduction to difficult mothers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Difficult Mothers: Understanding and Overcoming Their Power (Hardcover)
I've been reading a fair few books on this subject over the past year for various reasons. This one definitely offers a good overview of the subject matter, offering a typology of mothering styles which many people struggle to come to terms with. It has a series of checklists at the end of each section which offer food for thought and is written in an easy and accesible style.
If you are looking for something quite in-depth regarding difficult mothers, it probably isn't the book for you, as it doesn't discuss each type of difficult mother in much detail, nor how the different types manifest themselves other than to offer a few illustrations. But if you have started to question your own experiences and want to find out more then this a really good starting point and will help you to understand you feelings are not unreasonable, and that you are not alone.
