Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Harriet Lerner leads you in the most magnificent dance of all: The Mother Dance!

Her phenomenally successful audiobooks have profoundly changed the way we think about anger and intimacy. Now psychologist and mother Harriet Lerner tackles the most emotionally charged, issue of all time: motherhood.

In her own candid and compassionate voice, Dr. Lerner discusses this extraordinary, life-altering experience as no one before her has done. Listen as she explores:

  • His new life versus your new life
  • Worry, guilt, self-blame, and other unavoidables of motherhood
  • How your own childhood influences your parenting
  • The unexpected feelings motherhood awakens in you, good and bad
  • How children change your marriage
  • How to talk to kids you can't talk to
  • Mothers and daughters, mothers and sons
  • And much much more, from labor pains to empty nest pangs

Lerner shares personal stories and vivid case examples that are both hilarious and heart-wrenching. Lerner will guide you on this lifelong journey, whether you're considering having children, currently raising little ones, or are the mother of grown-up children.

clap trap

This is completely self absorbed meandering around the authers two brilliant and perfect sons, it was entirely unhelpful and did not in any way fullfill the blurb.
