What Every Mother Should Know About Motherhood, Career and Children
What is the best environment for raising healthy and happy children to grow up to become productive independent adults?
The Drama of the Mother-Child Bond is my response to this question.
With today’s frequent conflict in mother-child relationships, many women have difficulty balancing a maternal role with their professional aspirations and demands. The Drama of the Mother-Child Bond brings the interwoven issues of motherhood and children’s early development into focus.
It discusses the basic needs of young children; examines women’s issues with motherhood, and it offers new insights for reflection and guidance. The book also outlines a transformative new solution for the conflict between motherhood and career.
The following issues are addressed in The Drama of the Mother Child Bond:
- What is really the importance of children?
- What is a good age to become a mother?
- Does a woman need to have children when she can have a fulfilling life and career without motherhood?
- Is it wise to establish a career before becoming a mother or first to have children and then establish a career?
- Is marriage necessary for raising wholesome children?
- What is the importance of parent-child attachment – or lack of it – in the early years?
- The benefits of breast feeding
- The importance of sensory stimulation and brain development in the early years.
- The foundations of language development
- Beginnings of discipline and moral development
- Day care and young children’s development
- A solution for the motherhood-career conflict
