Neste livro a autora se baseia em dois argumentos (ou categorias): a de que todos nós temos uma sombra (conceito junguiano que seria mais ou menos nosso inconsciente, mas algo mais amplo, uma espécie de lado obscuro de cada um), e de que as crianças são seres fusionais, isto é, mãe e filho – principalmente nos dois primeiros anos de vida da criança – são basicamente uma coisa só emocionalmente. Isto se manifestaria de tal forma que aquilo que é colocado na sombra da mãe, ou seja, as emoções com ...more

Nedokážu úplně dobře zhodnotit. V půlce jsem skončila. Na mě je to moc ezo, ať už po jazykové nebo obsahové stránce. Pár věcí, které se mi líbily, jsem si tam našla.

An enlightening book that must be read carefully. Some issues taken at the beggining are a little bit radical. Keep a filter and the experience will be outstanding!

Leitura complexa! Não gostei muito da escrita! Mas aborda assuntos de grande discussão e polêmica!

Aborda diversas ideias interessantes e visões, pelo menos para mim, muito novas acerca da maternidade, sempre sob uma visão feminina do mundo. Nunca tinha ouvido conceitos como fusão emocional, realidade emocional da mãe, desestruturação espiritual pos parto, e fizeram um baita sentido para mim. Assim como tiveram outras coisas que não fizeram muito sentido, mas no geral adorei a leitura e foi enriquecedora.

Estupendo libro para todas aquellas mujeres occidentales que deseen afrontar la maternidad como un experiencia vital única. Laura Gutman demuestra como la gestación, el parto, el puerperio y la crianza representan momentos mágicos en la vida de toda mujer cuando se viven desde la naturalidad y el respeto hacía una misma. Desafortunadamente, muchas mujeres occidentales afrontan estas vivencias desde el miedo y la frustración...

es una buena obra para madres, o personas relacionadas con educación y familia. ligera y de fácil lectura mezcla lo emocional con lo fisiológico del asunto, similar a Carlos Glez pero desde la perspectiva femenina.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It gave great insight into the emotional/psychological side of the first phases of parenting: how your relationship develops with the baby and how your relationship changes and evolves with your partner. I plan on reading it a second time.

Achei o livro um pouco down... com uma visão meio triste... não é uma leitura que empolga.

Muy interesante para comprender la relación entre madre y bebé durante los dos primeros años de vida.
