- an excess of novelty and uncertainty
- lack of control
- high expectations
- no clear guidelines or measure of success
- low status and low pay
- poor accountability
- ideals versus reality
She goes through the book discussing each of these issues and other things like ...The causes and effects of motherhood stress. Ways to find balance and take care of yourself and relieve some of that stress...What Fathers can do to relieve motherhood stress.
I'm going to read this again and post a full review...Or at least a few posts on the subject. It's some thing I really want to think about. I definitely need some tools for surviving (and maybe even possibly finding more joy in???) the next few years.
I hope it gets easier. I'm hoping I can find a better balance for where I'm at right now. Or maybe I just need a new perspective? But I am seriously going to have hair issues too if some thing doesn't change.
I promise local LLL, I will return this book in August...But before then I'm diving in to it again.
