Both Peggy Orenstein and Cara Natterson have children who — deliberately, I assume — are mentioned only occasionally in their excellent books about raising better boys. Instead, Orenstein relies on the revealing and sometimes painfully intimate interviews she conducted over the course of two years with boys aged 16 to 22, and Natterson draws from years of practical experience as a pediatrician, and her ability to boil down complicated scientific studies to their tablespoon of curative parental medicine. But the personal stakes for both authors are clear, and urgent. These writers are worried. Our boys get awkward and quiet; we parents get awkwarder and quieter. To her credit, Orenstein acknowledges her biases.

Just this morning my eight-year-old daughter watched me walk naked from the bathroom to my bedroom. I explained that my stomach had to stretch to make room for each baby before shrinking back again after I gave birth. All my children — my husband Mathew and I have two sons, Oliver, 11, and Cruz, nine, as well as Mikaela — are used to seeing me walking around happy and comfortable in my own bare skin. In fact, I believe that every little girl should grow up seeing her mother naked on a regular basis. A survey by childcare professionals found that girls experience body dissatisfaction from the age of eight and less than half of girls aged between ten and 17 like the way they look. So as mothers we need to show them irrefutable evidence of body positivity from a very early age. The best way to do that is by letting them see our own bodies in their varied and naturally beautiful forms. Nor should we be hyper-critical of our flaws in their company.

If I were you, I would sever the relationship and find someone else. When she had a strict 6: If there was a disagreement, one person was supposed to submit to the other, consult a rulebook that covered almost everything, or turn to a church leader to decide for them. That's what love is, right. Most of us were Mormons and one point, many of us were even TBMs. If your relationship has gotten very serious, your girlfriend will probably try to find agreement in your faiths. Also, I'm not involved with a doctor but I am an RN and spend quite a bit of time with them. By the end of the first date with my husband I knew I wanted him to be a part of my life. I feel sorry for you, not because your husbands are working so hard but because you gave up your own lives. Good luck and best wishes as you head back out into the dating pool. He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end.
