This class is essential (my opinion) if you have a daughter or daughters. Today we talked about our hopes and dreams for our girls. Then we talked about our fears for our girls. (frightening!) Out of the 6 women in the class, I knew 5 extremely well which made for a great conversation. Today I ran off to Borders to buy Queen Bees and Wannabees by Rosalind Wiseman, The Talk by Sharon Maxwell, Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes and Mommies Who Drink by Brett Paesel (but that was not because of this class, but because the title hit home a little).
I will keep you posted on the class for the next few weeks. I thought I was doing ok as a mom during the class and was able to offer up stories and suggestions freely. Then, K, had a tantrum all the way to the orthodontist's office this afternoon which made me rethink every parenting technique I have ever tried. Ooh she was brutal and all I wanted to do was pull over and let her out.
Maybe I should get to work on my reading.
