VALLEY BREEZE LIVING EDITION | JANUARY 10-16, 2019 ENTERTAINMENT 3 mother must've stopped doing for me before my third birthday because I have no memory of it – is emblematic of the current state of motherhood in America. It's why I often say to audiences hither and yon, "Raising children has become threatening to the mental health of American women." I mean, they worry about everything, and I do mean every- thing! Every detail is important, which means, essentially, that in their minds there are no details. Everything and anything that goes wrong is potentially apocalyptic; therefore, everything must be man- aged. Everything even slightly off the beam is cause for reading yet another book. (Did I actually just say that?) The mother in question came to me because she was having lots of conflicts with her daughters. Good for them, I told her. They refuse to let you tell them what foot to lead with when they begin walking. We made a list of what was really, truly important parenting stuff to which she absolutely had to attend. It was fairly short, actually. I heard from her three months later. She's no longer in near-con- stant conflict with her daughters; she's having a much, much happier motherhood; and she's gone back to college. Yay! I mean, Yay! You go, girl! That's the way to do it!
