You may, or may not, have better child care instincts than your husband; but his can certainly be developed. If you don't respect the natural parenting talents that each of you has, you may inadvertently cast the two of you into the skewed but complementary roles of the Expert and the Dumb Apprentice.Jean Marzollo (20th century), U.S. author. Your Maternity Leave, ch. 7 (1989).
If work is part of your identity, think very carefully before you give it up. Giving it up won't make you a better mother; it will make you less of the person you are; and that will make you less of a mother.Jean Marzollo (20th century), U.S. author. Your Maternity Leave, ch. 9 (1989).
In the best of all possible worlds, childbirth enriches a marriage. In the worst, it harms it. No matter how good their marriage is, most couples find that having a baby challenges their relationship.Jean Marzollo (20th century), U.S. author. Your Maternity Leave, ch. 5 (1989).
Good guilt is a product of love and responsibility. It is a natural, positive instinct that parents and good child care providers have. If bad guilt is a monster, good guilt is a friendly fairy godmother, yakking away in your head to keep you alert to the needs of your baby.Jean Marzollo (20th century), U.S. author. Your Maternity Leave, ch. 3 (1989).
Keep telling yourself and others there are no supermoms, there are only wonderful mothers.Jean Marzollo (20th century), U.S. writer. Your Maternity Leave, ch. 3 (1989).
