Question: who is a motherandnbspwhat do we expect know and demand...

Question details

Who is a mother? 

What do we expect, know, and demand of mothers?  Where do these ideas come from? Cite examples.

What should a good mother be? What should she do? Who enforces it?

What do we define as mothering failures, equate with bad mothering, abuse and neglect?

Who decides what is good parenting?

How do our assumptions about good mothering cause problems for women across race and socio-economic class?

 

Multimodality is encouraged to support your answers-- draw responses from news articles, movies, memes, songs, anything that helps you expand upon what defines a "good mom" and a "bad mom." You might draw cultural comparisons for example-- my mother is from Eastern Europe and some of what makes her "a good mom" that culture--strict/harsh was judged harshly by more free types of California-American moms.
