Mother's Day
Those of you who do not already read rivka's journal might want to consider reading:

Not everyone's experiences with his or her mother is like the one described, but still, it's an interesting read.

Not my experience, but impressive. And very real.

Engineering Childhood Experience

(Link)
My experience was a bit more complicated, as well. But all the essential elements were there, particularly in my early childhood. My mother was the one who was always there, always handling emergencies, and always having to come up with answers.

But the real point of rivka's article is that she wants her child's experience to be that way. I suppose this is the situation that mothers generally find themselves thrown into, and those mothers who go on to do well have to stop and think about all the things they are going to learn in a big hurry.

I think, from what I've seen from the good parents I've known, is that half the battle is just being present in that "really paying conscious attention" kind of way.

If she can write that, then I'm sure she'll be fine.

I agree, on both points.
