Giveaway: Win Jessica Valenti’s Book Why Have Kids? AND A $50 Amazon Gift Card!

Jessica Valenti, one of the most high-profile young feminists in America, is taking on the controversial, yet necessary question…why have kids? in her most recent book, Why Have Kids?. This question is poised to spark an essential and honest conversation about modern parenthood.

“This is a book about how the American ideal of parenting doesn’t match the reality of our lives, and how that incompatibility is hurting parents and children,” says Valenti.

This book tackles the tough questions that many parents and potential parents should be challenged to answer. It’s not just for women who are already mothers, it’s also for younger women who have yet to start families. Even though most of you are a few years away from even thinking about having kids, I’m sure you all have your own thoughts and opinions on these issues and we’d love to hear them!

      While I don’t have children of my own and don’t plan on having any, I usually keep up with mom blogs and parenting styles because I work in the educational field. Mom blogs sort of give me insight as to the type of child or parent I will come across as an educator and eventually as an administrator. For example, I notice how these trends affect the child and the way parents treat their children at school. For the most part, where I work, I have encountered a lot of the helicopter parent who does not leave the school and highly mistrusts everybody involved in the education of their child aside from them. I like to read books to understand where the parent is coming from. However, part of what makes me not have a child is the fear of being the type of parent that loses themselves after a child, this seems to happen particularly to moms more. I am interested in what this book might say about feminists having children and how they balance their independence with the dependence of a child.
