BROOKE MUELLER BECOMES ICON FOR JUGGLING MOTHERHOOD AND REHAB
April 21 2011
Los Angeles, CA – Being a mother has never been easier than it is today. The benefits that are afforded to modern mothers, particularly in western nations, are worlds away from what are ancestors were able to access. Good nutrition, self-help
books and websites, and support systems abound throughout the mothering universe making the task easier than it has ever been. That doesn’t mean of course that the job is easy, only that mothers today start off much further ahead than mothers ever have before.
Of course the modern world presents its own pressures which mothers of the past never had to deal with. Money, for one, is a much different thing now meaning that women often have to work even while trying to take care of children, something uncommon in previous generations. There are of course many other modern issues that interfere with motherhood, or at least make it challenging. Some of those are the influences on the children themselves, but others are just in the day-to-day realities of taking care of children. For one mother, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, many of those difficulties are being played out in public but now Brooke Mueller has decided to embrace her difficulties and face them head on, and in doing so has quickly become an icon for all mothers having to deal with youngsters and regulars stints in rehab.
“Brooke has had a tough time lately, that is no secret, but she is determined to make things work. She is determined to make this work no matter the challenges or
obstacles. Brooke is a determined lady, I mean look how long she was married to Charlie,” said a spokesperson for Mueller. “Obviously juggling being a single mother and her occasional stints in rehab has been difficult but she wants to make this work, not only for Max and Bob, but also for all the other mothers out there who are struggling with the same issues. She wants to be an example for all of them.”
Mueller has had regular problems with drugs and alcohol in recent weeks, something with which she has apparently been struggling for a number of years.
“It’s not often that people are in the position to affect real life change, to actually impact people’s lives, but Brooke feels she is in that position, a position that she feels will not change the world as a whole, but will most certainly impact the lives of the many women struggling with this issue,” continued the spokesperson. “Brooke wants all women struggling with their children and how to take care of them while in rehab to know that they have a voice, that they have a person willing to work in their best interests. Brooke is here for them now and forever. She will work to make life better for all rehab mothers.”
Mueller is reportedly planning on submitting a proposal to Congress to help finance daycares at rehab facilities.
“Every mother has her challenges and Mueller is no different. Well she’s a little different I suppose but not a whole lot. The problems she faces on a day-to-day basis are the same struggles that many women face. Often though they only have anger or sympathy, but little help,” said Scrape TV Family Values analyst Marge Hendricks. “At first glance other mothers may think they have little in common with Mueller and her situation, but we are all in the end human beings and all of us struggle with the same things. Mueller is giving a voice to a group that is often overlooked and ignored and hopefully through that she will improve the lives of many more people than just herself.”
Mueller has also apparently not been getting a whole lot of help from ex-husband Sheen despite his own rehab experiences.
