LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF THE TOO-GOOD MOTHER ARCHETYPE is a journey into the heart and soul of mothering. It takes you to places that have remained hidden due to out-dated beliefs about what it means to be a good mother. Dr. Ashley reveals the truth about being a good enough mother and dispels the myths of being a perfect parent.
Based on over three decades of working in pediatric, mental health and public education settings; a doctoral dissertation; and experience of raising four children, Dr. Ashley has written a book that aims to transform how women feel about themselves as mothers.
LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF THE TOO-GOOD MOTHER ARCHETYPE will help women connect more deeply to themselves and others, and feel more authentic, mindful and whole. It weaves real stories and common themes into archetypal mythology and the rapidly changing roles of women, creating the fabric of a new parenting paradigm.
“I highly recommend Dr. Ashley’s book for every mom who has ever felt ‘not good enough.’”
Harley A. Rotbart, M.D., author of No Regrets Parenting
