Working Parents (Revised Edition)


Formats & editions


How can you raise kids well if you are a busy working parent? Parenting expert Michael Grose has all the answers.

Is it really harder than ever before to juggle family, work and the rest of life, or does it just feel like it? How can you raise kids well if you are a busy working parent? And how can you actually enjoy your kids when the week seems to go by in a blur? If it comes to that, how can you even stay awake the whole day?!

Michael Grose, father of three and parenting expert, understands the pressures intimately. More importantly, he has answers to the questions that plague working parents everywhere.

From the decision to work, through finding the right childcare, to dealing with guilt and the negative comments of those around you, to coping when your child is ill, and working from home, Michael covers the whole complicated world you are facing. There are invaluable tips and tricks to managing your time, looking after yourself and dealing with the demands of the workplace (including those ones that have a habit of leaching through into your own time) and of home.

He also shatters the myth of 'quality time' and shows, instead, why the three things that really matter for family closeness are 'hang-around time', focused time and rituals.

WORKING PARENTS is more than a manual for survival, it's the help you need to take the pressure off and start enjoying your family, your job and the rest of your life again.
