Title: So Glad They Told Me
Subtitle: Women Get Real About Motherhood
Target audience: Mothers with children of all ages, Pregnant women, Empty Nesters
Summary of book: The transition to motherhood is not always a smooth one, often complicated by the sometimes competitive, judgmental climate of modern motherhood. Women who do not glide easily into motherhood can feel inadequate, ashamed, and unprepared after they expected that parenthood would come more naturally to them.
Through the #SoGladTheyToldMe social media movement, hundreds of women all over the world shared the real, supportive advice they received when they became mothers… or the advice they wish they’d received. Our next essay collection is all about this type of parenting truth—the real, the hard, and the ugly—and the support and solidarity that are essential to moms.
