I had my first child in 1990 and I thought that all of these advice books (many featured on ALB) were mostly useless. I think I personally read most of them. The assumption was always there are choices and options for working. I remember exactly ZERO women with “choices”. Add in a nice pile of judgment and guilt for both stay-at-home moms and working moms, and you have a recipe for a nice little mental breakdown.
Of course in 2014, this book is so outdated for many reasons. Technology and economic hardship of the last decade have rendered this book obsolete. Weed it and don’t look back.
