The Hardest Job in the World

"You are not a perfect parent. In all this world, there is none."

As someone who greatly looks forward to having children one day, I found this book not only enjoyable, but also highly informative. I loved Garden's format of highlighting the main family that is talked about throughout the duration of the novel, but also peppering the narrative with examples of other children. It was helpful to see a variety of stories highlighting experiences, both good and bad, that almost every parent will face at some point in their lives. And the quote at the end about how no parent is "perfect" is also very important. It's important to anyone, especially new parents, to know that sometimes, your children are going to make bad decisions. But in a way, that's also crucial to their overall development and provided you are able to address the situation in a calm and appropriate matter, your children will ultimately grow up to be amazing individuals in today's society.

Hilarious, witty, fun and educational, not your typical self help book

As the mother of two toddler boys, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 (yes a year apart 🙄) I found Jennifer Garden’s Parenting Children: Learn How to be a Loving and Effective Parent as a witty and funny self help book about all the joys and pains of parenting in today’s modern world. I particularly loved the stories from the dads point of view as they were very funny and made the subjects very relatable.
The subjects covered were very relevant in today’s world; subjects like the struggle between being your child’s friend but also a disciplinarian, how to handle social media and electronics, bullying, and the ever growing crisis of ADHD. For me I particularly liked the fact that there was not much “psychology speech” if you will, making much easier to follow, yet it was very much based on science and research.
Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a little help in parenting, and wouldn’t mind laughing along the way, because after all, that is what parenting is all about, the struggle, the frustration, and the laughing later. GREAT READ
