darla shine’s got nothing on helene bamberger

yes, i’m still hating on darla shrine. just like the last post i wrote about the ‘mommy war’ and how women like darla shine and her followers totally feed into this ridicular battle that basically hurts both sides of the camp – stay-at-home-mothers and working-mothers.

but here is a woman that, thank god, puts people like darla shine to shame. not because she is siding one way or another, but because, aside from her intelligence, actual research and objective reasoning, shows how these ridiculous pressures placed on women today is completely harming their mental/emotional health. even more so, she’s able to put all this information together to illustrate how impossible today’s high expectations on women are reaching – and basically, how it’s just setting each of us up for failure.

she has written a book, Le Conflit: la Femme et La Mere, or Conflict: The Woman and the Mother, but unfortunately, it has not been released in english just yet. when it does, you know i’ll be first in line to buy it.

and just to add, i liked what jennifer aniston said in retort to bill o’reilly:

“Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth,” she told People. “And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”

to bill o’reilly – sir, you are quite the jackass.

  1. I must remember to check out the book once it's available in English. I know I'll need help in an objective outlook on the dual roles of motherhood and a career when I am parent. Thanks!
