I Don't Know Why She Bothers Summary


I Don't Know Why She Bothers: Guilt Free Motherhood For Thoroughly Modern Women by Daisy Waugh

Daisy Waugh's razor-sharp wit takes on modern motherhood right between the eyes...Mummy. Ma, Mama, Mum. There may be different names for 'mother' but it often feels like there's only one correct way to BE one. Has motherhood been completely hijacked by parenting experts and the tutting, middle class Mummy-as-Vocation brigade? The bar to good motherhood is now so high, it's impossible for modern mothers not to feel as if they are failing. 'I don't know how she does it!' rings out the frantic cry. 'I don't know why she bothers,' answers Daisy. Life is short - but it's not over! We love our children but we are individuals too. Part feminist manifesto, part hilarious rant, Daisy asks modern mothers to STOP TAKING IT ALL SO SERIOUSLY. And maybe along the way, they'll start to feel a bit better about themselves.

I Don't Know Why She Bothers Reviews


It is a hilarious, timely book - and a rare and potent antidote to the guilt, exhaustion and anxiety that threaten to poison every aspect of modern motherhood. SUNDAY TIMES To read this book as a new mother is to know the pure joy of someone speaking for - and up for - you at a time when you have not the resources to do so yourself...fantastically energetic, heartfelt and witty identification of all the absurdities created by maternal guilt...a hilarious, timely book. -- Lucy Mangan SUNDAY TIMES The provocative I Don't Know Why She Bothers by Daisy Waugh is one for women who feel life is too short to make their own fish fingers! GOOD HOUSEKEEPING Waugh's book is not so much a call for bad mothering to return as a return to a more laissez-faire parenting, liberated from all the fear and guilt women impose on themselves...Waugh is refreshingly frank, swears like a sailor and debunks the sanctification of motherhood with relish...This is probably one of the funniest parenting guides you'll find. THE OBSERVER I Don't Know Why She Bothers isn't a guide or a handbook; it's merely saying what a lot of women think. No doubt the Mumgelicals will want to burn this book and Waugh's effigy, but I think it should be given away free with every pregnancy test. IRISH INDEPENDENT This self-help book deserves pride of place by on slummy-mummy Bridget Darcy's bedside table. THE METRO
