Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

The best-selling 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.   

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Life changer!

Easily one of the best books that I have come across for parents! It is a fabulous mixture of research based practical strategies and real life examples! I just finished and can’t wait to listen again! I have already sent a screen shot of the book to my closest friends with the message... get this book ASAP! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Julie! Now, it is time to implement! Thinking about setting up a book club-ish group, since I feel compelled to ACT! A more peaceful mind and home is on the other side... Don’t hesitate for a second about getting this book!
