Today's mothers are suffering from an epidemic of guilt that is so powerful and so uniquely related to motherhood that it has it's own name – Motherguilt. But what causes them to feel this way and why are fathers seemingly immune from the condition? Wanting only the best for their families mothers run themselves ragged, taking care of everyone and everything else before considering their own needs. When things go wrong, as they inevitably do, they blame themselves and Motherguilt takes over.
So is it possible for women to deprogram themselves of this opressive guilt? Yes, say Ita Buttrose and Dr Penny Adams, who have combined their respective talents to examine this phenomenon and offer positive solutions for a permanent cure.
