Just when I started congratulating myself on being a fairly relaxed parent compared to some of the mothers interviewed for this book, the author began a discussion of how the American economy and educational system make it extremely difficult for middle-class parents to afford quality daycare and schooling for their children. Cue sweaty palms and racing pulse. On the whole, an honest, mostly unpatronizing glimpse into contemporary middle-class motherhood.
