The Balanced Mom: Raising Your Kids without Losing Your Self by Bria Simpson is a good read for women in general, and particularly for those who find themselves threatened by motherhood in such an enormous way that they almost perceive it as a career. The book offers suggestions for mothers who give up on many things along the way as they raise their children and feel a void when their children are grown up because they have focussed too much just on raising their kids.
The book certainly does not say that children are secondary; what it guides the mother in doing is maintaining an interest in the world around her even as she proceeds to build a strong relationship with her family and her children. Written in simple language and with plenty of tips, it is bound to motivate those women who have marooned themselves on an island with only their children. Rediscover yourself is the message that the book wants to give all mothers.
