Writer Ayelet Waldman knows all about the trouble you can get into, writing about mother issues.  In an essay for the New York Times' Modern Love column, she confessed to loving her husband more than her children.  In her book, titled "Bad Mother", Waldman recounts many stories about what she calls "the perils and joys of trying to be a decent mother in a world intent on making you feel like a bad one." As she told Anne Strainchamps, that Modern Love controversy was a perfect example.
