"We keep hearing about how French parents are superior — the stereotype is at least that they’re less neurotic — but it would be easier to be less anxious if there were more structural support for parents in the first place. If anything, this book made me feel as though when it comes down to deciding what to do about balancing work and motherhood, the decision will be an economic one, not one mandated by the iron fist of the La Leche League.”

I couldn’t agree more.
