There was no chapter on sons born from rape, which I would have liked to see, containing just simple facts, how and when to explain it, without any derogatory labels, or prophesies of doom.
The book also speaks in a lot of absolutes that can be contradictory, depending on the point the authors are trying to make. Instead of saying what's possible, what to watch for, and what to do about it, it just plainly says, 'without a supportive father, this WILL happen, and very few of you solitary mothers will be able to do anything about it without finding a man to help you.' Which basically summarizes the entire book.Read more ›
Yes, we all know that growing up without a father has disadvantages. Instead of ramming that point home again and again, focus more on what mothers can do about it.
I was especially disappointed with the postscript, "Become an Activist for Your Son." I was expecting practical, concrete suggestions that I could implement to advocate for my son on a personal, everyday level.
Instead, I found blather about welfare and health-care reform and other such things.
Let me pencil social activism into my already overwhelming schedule.
