There is so much pressure for today’s moms to do it all ourselves. Do you feel it? I do.
We’re doing more than ever, more isolated than ever. Floundering and exhausted, but too ashamed to ask for help.
But we weren’t meant to go it alone. And until relatively recently, we didn’t. “It takes a village to raise a child,” the popular maxim says, and entire civilizations lived by its truth.
But we don’t see much of the village anymore.
That void, and the profoundly-felt vacuum it creates, inspired me to write my latest post for Her View From Home.
What happened to “the village?” and can we get it back?
