Dr. Trietze describes the "subtly dominating" mother as one who thinks she is a good mother, but who manages to develop a headache when the children want to go out and have a good time. It is so e.isv for a mother to "subtly dominate" her children—since so many women have had long practice at subtly dominating their husbands --thai every mother should make sure she doesn't use any of that type o( mother's tricks. You're guilty ot doing just that if you try to keep your children quiet and obedient by developing headaches, having to He down frequently, or pleading that whatever they are doing lhat annoys you makes you "nervous." "Make Mother Happy" Plea li i Another Instance You're also guilty" of "subtle domination" if you try to get them to obey your wishes by asking them to do such and such to "make mother happy." You're guilty of such dangerous behavior, too, it you are never wiling to let your children make decisions for themselves. The "mother- knows-best" type of woman is just. another dominating mother, who wants to bend her children to her will, for her own comfort and convenience. So watch your attitude toward your children for such tell-tale signs of subtle domination. And don't fool yourself by dismissing Dr. Tietze's charge wif.i: "I'm not like that." After all. part of the psychiatrist's definition of the subtly domineering mother is: "She thinks she is good to her children." You'll have to watch yourself over a period of time to find out for sure whether yon are really good to your children or more concerned with your own comfort and convenience than with their hapiness.
