Publisher's summary

Parents everywhere, hear this: You can calm down, take a breath, stop worrying, and do more for your kids by doing less. They will survive, thrive, and later thank you for giving them freedom. And you’ll enjoy raising them in a happier, more peaceful home.

In Take Back the House, Dr. Karen Latimer, a family physician and mother of five, offers some down-home parenting advice for those ready to parent with more confidence and more joy. Speaking from the trenches of her own house, Dr. Latimer will help you take back yours by gently reclaiming power and perspective and practicing some simple, stress-free advice. She’ll help you focus on your own happiness to develop a thoughtful, balanced dynamic with your kids. Told with candor and humor, this Audible Original will leave you feeling recharged, renewed, and perfectly happy with imperfection. Warning: This piece involves a naked toddler in Target and other unforgettable scenes from real life.
