Have you ever felt that to be a good parent, you need to be superhuman? Like millions of parents, you've got Mommy Guilt: a feeling that your family is suffering because you can't do everything.

The authors of Mommy Guilt wanted to know what causes these potentially over-whelming feelings. They performed a thorough survey of more than 1,300 parents, and the results point to many factors. Some of the most common include yelling, lack of family time, work choices, and tension over school and extracurricular issues. Mommy Guilt offer practical strategies for dealing with these issues and dozens of others, and presents seven straightforward principles for turning our hectic, stressed, guilt-inducing ways of life into more nurturing, healthful experiences for ourselves and our families.
