Summary
Would-be parents must decide whether to have children amidst a combination of cultural expectations and hard facts. Valenti explores these controversial questions through on-the-ground reporting, startling new research, and her own unique experiences as a mom. She moves beyond the black and white 'mommy wars' over natural parenting, discipline, and work-life balance to explore a more nuanced reality, one filled with ambivalence, joy, guilt, and exhaustion
