'Punk Mom' Jessica Mills uses her own experience of pregnancy and parenting to illuminate the tricky course ahead for the prospective parent who doesn t fit into the relatively wealthy demographic that is the target of most parenting advice. A combination of personal experience and social and scientific research is brought together to deliver down-to-earth, practical information for those embarking on perhaps the most difficult thing most of us will ever do: how to bring up a healthy, happy child while staying true to the life you have chosen, resisting the pressures that can conspire to make child-rearing an isolating and politically frustrating time. This is a book for all those people who seek to raise their children in an ethical, caring way; who have complex and variable lives and who are making the best of their meagre resources. For the poor parent, for the punk parent and most of all for the politically engaged parent who seeks to resist the social limitations placed on people who choose to have children.
