Covering all the sticky challenges of a working parent's day (such as getting everyone out of the house on time in the morning, managing difficult behavior when you’re tired at the end of the day, and controlling tech time), this book will help you to stop feeling guilty about being at work and give you the tools to create the harmonious family life you want to come home to.
Offers strategies and guidance to building a happier family life by doing less not more, and parenting smarter not harder.
Most modern parents work. And we have limited time, limited energy, limited patience, and too much to do. We are seldom at our best at the end of a long working day when the parenting shift kicks in. We want to do the right thing but, in the thick of it, with no time to think and no energy to spare, it's easy to miss the small changes that could make a big difference to our child's (and our own) wellbeing.
This book moves the goalposts by suggesting ways to parent smarter not harder and to really tune in to the needs of our children and our families. Focusing on the quality of time and not the quantity, parents can learn to cultivate better family wellbeing and happiness.
The Working Parent's Survival Guide: How to Parent Smarter Not Harder is essential listening for every working parent. Written by an expert in child development and parenting who has worked with thousands of stressed out working parents, it walks you through an approach to parenting that will transform family life—and which can be fitted into modern working patterns.
