As regular readers know, I’m working on a feminist book about parenting. Please help me write a better, more inclusive project by answering some of the questions I posting here at First the Egg on (some) Wednesdays.
- Parents: what do you do to take care of yourself? How do you manage to take breaks, to nourish your whole self, to stay okay emotionally and physically? If you can’t/don’t, what effect does that have on you? If you do, or try to, is it for yourself (to feel good), for your children (to be more alert, happier, a good model, etc. for them), or for some other reason?

Please indicate whether you’d like to be identified by full name, first name only, or a pseudonym of your choice if I end up using your words, as well as the age(s) of your child or children.
- Feel free to email your responses instead of commenting here, if you prefer: molly at firsttheegg dot com.
- Please answer any question (or questions) that strikes your fancy, in any way, at any length. Anything relevant to these topics is welcome, even if what you have to say is not really related to the questions. I’m so grateful for any thoughts you offer!
