Will be downloading from amazon.

You want to use the review to argue for better access to health care and support for all DS families, great. But this is just vile. Christina Nehring should go crawl back under whatever rock she crawled out from.

Motherhood is such a tetchy subject – whether it’s mothers slagging other mothers or a broader social turn upon certain behaviours in mothering. We seem to be infinitely capable of getting riled up and issuing snarky judgments on this topic. It’s definitely not the same for parenting as a gender-neutral treatment, although parents of both genders do come in for a fair bit of judgment – but mothering is a guaranteed hot-button issue that only gets more attention with “provocative” reviews such as this one.

I agree with the interpretation that she is pretty much pissed off that the book author has had an easier more-privileged time of it than her.

Why on earth did I look? Thanks a LOT, wini.

That is unspeakably mean. I could write something like that and stuff it in the desk drawer as long as I knew it would never see the light of day. Or I could spare myself the effort and not review it at all. Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
