KJ Dell'Antonia knows her stuff. As lead editor of of the New York Times Motherlode blog, KJ interviewed families and found out what exactly is getting in the way of finding joy in family life.
She then broke it down to nine things that seem to pervade the family experience, and offers practical and doable solutions to help ease some of the stress.
We love this book, KJ's writing style, and most of all, the idea that it's possible to look back on these years without groaning over all the battles that crop up amid the daily grind. We highly recommend How to Be a Happier Parent!
