What makes a good mother? Are some women just born naturally maternal, or do mothers discover that part of themselves once they have a child? Now a renowned expert on the subject–and herself a mother of three–addresses the unspoken worries and fears that accompany motherhood and shares the reassuring message that every mother learns “on the job.” Dr. Valerie Davis Raskin has worked with more than four hundred mothers in twenty years of clinical practice and has discovered that mothering is just as developmental as childhood. Dr. Raskin identifies the nine challenges facing mothers from their child’s infancy to young adulthood, pivotal moments that put mothers to the test time and again–and yet from which they can emerge truly rewarded. • IDENTITY: How to gain confidence during those overwhelming first months after you’ve given birth or adopted, but don’t yet “feel” like a mother. • UNLOVING MOMENTS: Every mother’s secret guilt–learn to accept those not-so-precious moments when you don’t like the child you love so dearly. • HONORING THE FATHER: Tips for helping Dad stop feeling like a third wheel and bond with his child (and receive attention from you!). • SEPARATION: How to maintain a positive outlook on your child’s milestones, from the first day of preschool to packing him off to sleepaway camp. • SETTING LIMITS: How to put your foot down, even when your child kicks, screams, or cries. • IMPERFECT INSTITUTIONS: How to cope when your child does not have the best teacher or the most inspiring coach, or faces a less than fair grading system. • REVISED DREAMS: Your cute five-year-old in a pink tutu has no rhythm. Your nine-year-old cannot catch a ball. Learn to modify your dreams for your child–and follow your child’s dreams instead. • ADVERSITY: You can’t keep your child in a plastic bubble, but you can take a deep breath, relax, and be there for her when life gets tough. • SAYING GOODBYE: Discover the joys of loving your adult child while not living under the same roof. This wonderfully anecdotal, engaging, and accessible book is nothing less than an essential training manual for mothers of all ages. The bottom line: Just because motherhood is sometimes difficult, confusing, intense, sleepless, and frustrating, doesn’t mean mothers aren’t doing it right! From the Hardcover edition.

It takes more than a baby to make a mother, and mothers make more than babies. Bringing together a range of international studies, Motherhoods, Markets and Consumption examines how marketing and consumer culture constructs particular images of what mothers are, what they should care about and how they should behave; exploring how women's use of consumer goods and services shapes how they mother as well as how they are seen and judged by others. Combining personal accounts from many mothers with different theoretical perspectives, this book explores: How advertising, media and consumer culture contribute to myths and stereotypes concerning good and bad mothers How particular consumer choices are bound up with women’s identities as mothers The role of consumption for women entering different phases of their mothering lives: such as pregnancy, early motherhood, and the "empty nest"

"How can a mother care lovingly for a small boy, yet avoid reinforcing the examples he receives from all around him? How can she challenge male stereotypes, and at the same time fit him to survive in the world in which we live? Can our sons grow up to be our friends? Judith Arcana ... faced these questions with her own son, and has drawn on the diary she kept then, as well as on interviews with other women, to write this moving, honest and thought-provoking book."--Page 4 of cover.

There is no female religious figure so widely known and revered as the Virgin Mary. Mary has inspired in cultures around the world a deep devotion, a desire to emulate her virtue, and a strong belief in her power. Perhaps no population has been so deeply affected by this maternal figure as Filipino Catholics, whose apparitions of Mary have increased in response to recent events, drawing from a broad repertoire of the Catholic supernatural and pulling attention to new articulations of Christianity in the Global South. In Mother Figured, historical anthropologist Deirdre de la Cruz offers a detailed examination of several appearances and miracles of the Virgin Mary in the Philippines from materials and sites ranging from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. By analyzing the effects of the mass media on the perception and proliferation of apparition phenomena, de la Cruz charts the intriguing emergence of new voices in the Philippines that are broadcasting Marian discourse globally. Based on two years of ethnographic fieldwork and hitherto unexplored archives in the Philippines, the United States, and Spain, Mother Figured documents the conditions of Marian devotion’s modern development and tracks how it has transformed Filipinos’ social and political role within the greater Catholic world.

As you were growing up, your mother's self-image likely impacted your own in many conscious and unconscious ways. Perhaps those things your mother disliked about herself-her looks, her lack of confidence, or even her personal failures-came to shape your own self-image. In My Mother, My Mirror, an experienced psychotherapist explores how mothers unwittingly pass on their self-esteem and body image issues to their daughters, helps you break the cycle when parenting your own daughters, and guides you through the process of overcoming the hidden negative messages that keep you from reaching your fullest potential. Without blaming your mother, you will learn to rethink and rebuild your self-image. A thoughtful and engaging perspective on mother-daughter relationships in all of their complexity. -Melinda Parisi, Ph.D., psychologist at the University Medical Center at Princeton

“In 1982 I was travelling in a suburban train between Boston and New York. I suddenly felt a stirring at the base of my spine and a trickle quickly turned into a rush of energy moving upward. Another will seemed to be working within me and I felt a mandate to shift my posture. Feeling awkward and embarrassed I assumed a lotus posture in the public carriage and waited for the next event. A flood of blissful fluid rushed up my spine emerging out of my heart. My journey with Kundalini had begun which would dominate and shape my life for the next twenty years.” Making of a Man is a personal disclosure. Dr. Woodcock tells for the first time those intensely intimate experiences with Kundalini (the divine mother) that both deconstructed his personality and transformed it. The content of the book may look like poetry but in fact is the residue of a poesis, a making. These word forms are virtually unedited since the time he wrote them down during a long period of ecstatic vision. This book is thus the record of an intense sustained spiritual process during which Dr. Woodcock reached a region of reality where he experienced the love, power and wisdom of the creative word. What was spoken thus became so! A man was transformed and an aspect of spirit incarnated.
