This book is about babies and mothers, but also about fathers, adolescents, lovers and others. It’s about a child’s universe and families, especially mothers, who struggle to survive. Stephen J. Costello, Ph.D., writes with wit and wisdom; he offers his observations with insight and intrigue. He explores, among other themes, eighteen reasons why mothers hate their babies, even as they love them. It’s a book of aphorisms intended for everyone because childhood experiences affect us all.
