There’s no getting around the fact that having children creates all kinds of different pressures for parents. However, it seems that mothers feel the stresses of childrearing much more acutely. And nowhere does that ring more true than in the United States, where moms are reportedly “drowning” under the weight of their various responsibilities.
No matter where you come from, motherhood can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. From the moment many women become a mom, the new challenges that come with a rearing children can be quite overwhelming. And as their kids grow up, there’s a whole host of other things to worry about.
For mothers of newborn babies, stresses can be found in a real lack of sleep. They may then find that their exhausted state is exacerbated by a little being whose seemingly non-stop crying demands their undivided attention. And what’s more, being responsible for a tiny life can leave women feeling resentful, having lost a sense of their own identity.
