In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challenge--parenting, from toddlers to teens--with concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids.
Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes:
A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks--for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college.
Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you're playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work.
Clever tips to make the most of in-between time--Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids.
Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.
