This week in Sociology, we will be examining issues related to motherhood and disability. In class on Tuesday, we will watch the first half of the documentary Little Man. (On Thursday, class is canceled). Blog posting #12 is due 2 hours before class time on Thursday, April 7th. You should read either chapter 2:”Doing Everything Right: Choice, Control, and Mother-Blame” or chapter 3: “Diminished Motherhood,”  in the Landsman book and relate the chapter to the movie in a detailed analysis. Describe in detail the major concepts of the chapter. How were these concepts represented in the documentary film? Find a link to more information for parents of disabled children.
