Raising A Family, Having A Life, and Loving (Almost) Every Minute of Parenthood

As a longtime journalist and the former editor of the New York Times Motherlode blog, KJ Dell'Antonia asked and answered a lot of parenting questions, but the most intriguing: why isn't this more fun? In her new book she identifies ten areas that give parents the most grief, such as mornings, chores, or screentime. She explores why they are hard, and offers specific steps to change what we do about the problem and how we think about parenting.
