    There was a lot of talk about Erica Jong’s piece (and her daughter’s companion piece) on some of the other blogs I read. 

    I think she was extreme in her views and while she’s entitled to express herself, it’s just not helpful!  Women would be better off supporting each other instead of tearing each other down and judging each other.

    I don’t yet have children but I do think that we have over complicated motherhood and parenting. 

    Everyday we are bombarded by new messages and advice on what / how / why we should be parenting our children when the reality is that we can only do the best we can for them and hope they turn out to be productive adults!

    In my opinion we make it so much harder for ourselves than it should / needs to be – only we can make the decisions regarding our families and children because we are the only people that walk in our shoes.
