Can I tell you something. Got to tell you one thing. If you expect the freedom that you say is yours prove that you deserve it. Help us to preserve it or being free will just be words and nothing more.

Parenthood Still Marginalized

Ellen Galinsky wrote this about parenthood in the 1980s. Do you think it's still true today?
"The studies of life-span psychology, like those of adult development, have also minimized the place of parenthood. Parenthood, when stressed in adult development at all, as in Women of a Certain Age, by Lillian Rubin, and In Her Time, by Iris Sanguiliano, was more likely to be cast as something for women to be freed from in order to search for and find their own sense of identity."
 Galinsky writing about how parenthood was treated at the time she began working on her book The Six Stages of Parenthood.
