SUMMARY Myths of Motherhood How Culture Reinvents the Good Mother Sherry Thurer à 8 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Sherry Thurer L Thurer wends her way from the Stone Age to the age of Hillary Rodham Clinton painting a vivid often frightening picture of life for mothers and children in a time when their roles were constructed by men Along the way she debunks myth after myth exposing the not so golden ages of Classical Gree. The new emphasis on the joys of domesticity were not yet strangulating as they would become for some women in the next hundred years but in the meantime served as anew source of female authority At this time a mother s obligations to instruct the young provided her with a platform to express her ideas on a broad range of subjects Armed with such a duty she could give advice teach morals even proselytize a captive audience Thurer 197 The Exaltation of Mother 18th and 19th Century MomThe doctrine of separate spheres that is the blessed home versus the cruel outside created a division of the wolrd according to gender not seen since the Italian Renaissance Our current ideal of the mother is like all ideals culture bound historically specific and hopelessly tied to fashion And of course fashions change As we sh

SUMMARY Myths of Motherhood How Culture Reinvents the Good Mother Sherry Thurer à 8 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Sherry Thurer This groundbreaking and irreverent history of motherhood is worth a hundred advice books for any mother who’s ever been made to feel guilty or frazzled by society’s impossible expectations Analyzing data from the psychoanalyst’s couch to the hidden history of wet nursing psychologist Shari. The image of mother at home tending to the needs of her family so popularized by sitcoms in the 1950s and 1960s is actually a cultural anomaly As Shari L Thurer points out in The Myths of Motherhood How Culture Reinvents the Good Mother 1994 the fifties were an aberration 250 Rather than being the norm the nuclear family depicted by television families such as the Cleavers the Nelsons the Reeds et al reflect a family model that existed for a very short time the 1950s and early 1960s in Western culture Thurer s point is not to disparage or laud the nuclear family but merely to point out that the frozen image of mom at home caring for her family while dad goes out to make money does not accurately reflect our history As Thurer explains a mother s role and what culture perceives as the ideal mother

SUMMARY Myths of Motherhood How Culture Reinvents the Good Mother Sherry Thurer à 8 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Sherry Thurer Ce and the Italian Renaissance and revealing the pervasive ideal of Dr Spock’s selfless stay at home mother as the historical aberration it actually was A work of impassioned scholarship and astonishing range The Myths of Motherhood does nothing less than recast our conception of good mothering. This book is intense although I found some of the premises to be a little thin It s a harsh read going through history and reading over and over the brutality that has been brought on children as well as women uite horrifying sometimes The only way I could really get through those parts is to just really disassociate myself from history as if I was reading about an alien culture I am glad I read it it certainly gives context for where we are today but I don t really buy into the idea that things are so terrible maybe that s just a coping mechanism
