When a liberal psychoanalyst admits that mothers must bond with their babies



How I love it when level-headed liberals get the cold shoulder from other liberals or even progressives for something that is has been proven right but does fit the left-leaning narrative.

Erica Komisar is your typical New York liberal, but her recent book which was published early this year has been a thorn on the side of women who still want their cake and eat it too.  The book is titled; Being There: Why Prioritizing Motherhood in the First Three Years Matters.

The bottom line is that Komisar is telling women that they need to put their personal interests aside and take care of their newborns in those early three years of life.  Because of that evidence even coming from someone with liberal leanings, the typical left-leaning mainstream media including NPR want nothing to do with her.  Well, ABC’s breakfast news show Good Morning America was willing to have her on the show.  The person that interviewed her however said; “I don’t believe in the premise of your book at all. I don’t like your book.”

Well, a lot of leftists don’t like the book at all.  Just does not fit the premise of women being free and independent and wanting it all.  Telling women that they need to be home with their children only will hurt their emotions.  It puts them under the thumb of their husbands who just wants to push them around like a Stepford Wife.  After all, she may have more children and that means…oh she must depend on the husband alone for all those comforts, and she may have to be a homemaker. YIKES!

Komisar also points out how putting children in daycare does not help the cause, for the child is in the care of a stranger and eventually is making the child emotionally disturbed.  She does support a maternity-leave policy which America has yet to adopt and is opposed by most conservatives for fiscal reasons.  It is not all that bad for Komisar.  Her conclusions has gotten her booked on Fox & Friends and Christian Talk radio stations.

As much as the left talks about science, they just don’t like it when the science does fit the progressive narrative.  It is not about science, it is about attacking God and the marriage institution that he himself put into place.

The Politicization of Motherhood – WSJ used to be as American as apple pie. Ms. Komisar, 53, is a Jewish psychoanalyst who lives and practices on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I don’t like your book.” The premise of Ms. Komisar’s book—backed by research in psychology, neuroscience and epigenetics—is that “mothers are biologically necessary for babies,” and not only for the obvious reasons of pregnancy and birth.
