Motherhood doesn’t have to mean losing yourself... Most moms are grateful they make the choice to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM), but after a couple of years, they may feel like they’re losing their mind. The alternative is going back to work, but that doesn’t seem right either. Flex mom is for mothers who want a third model of motherhood, somewhere between stay-at-home mom and working mom. This third way is to be the primary caregiver for their children while deliberately creating a path that fuels their passions – leaving them fulfilled and confident. Described as a melting pot of positive psychology and coaching, with the humor and honesty of Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, Flex Mom helps moms make the fleeting childrearing years their best yet.

Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780143109297
Release Date: 2017
Genre: FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS

In this important and conversation-starting book, veteran psychoanalyst Erica Komisar offers a provocative and compelling premise- a mother's emotional and physical presence in her child's life--especially during the first three years--means that her child has a greater chance of growing up emotionally healthy, happy, secure, and resilient. aWhen that essential presence goes missing, the child is at higher risk for social, emotional, and developmental issues, both immediate and long term. a Compassionate and balanced, and focusing on the emotional health and well-being of children as well as that of the mothers who care for them, this book shows mothers and fathers how to give their children the best chance for developing into healthy and loving adults. Based on more than two decades of clinical work, established psychoanalytic theory, and the most current and cutting-edge neurobiological research on caregiving, attachment, and brain development, the book explains- - How to establish emotional connection with a newborn or young child--regardless of whether you're able to pause your career to stay home - How to select and train quality childcare if necessary--and how to ease transitions and minimize stress for your baby or toddler - What's true and false about widely held beliefs like "Babies are resilient" and how to combat feelings of post-partum depression or boredom - Why three months of maternity leave is not long enough--and how women and their partners can take control of their choices to provide for their family's emotional needs in the first three years
