Happy Parents, Happy Kids by Ann Douglas
Happy Parents, Happy Kids is the latest book by parenting author Ann Douglas. It has just been published by HarperCollins Canada (on February 19, 2019).
Here’s the scoop on Ann's new book!
The book is a guide to boosting your enjoyment of parenting while maximizing the health and happiness of your entire family at the same time.
It zeroes in on how you feel about parenting; how you think about parenting; what strategies you use to manage your moods, minimize stress, increase your energy level, and safeguard your physical and mental health — and how you encourage your kids to do the same.
It also talks about choosing the most effective parenting strategies (parenting strategies that work for parents and kids as opposed to parents or kids).
The book — which is based on in-depth interviews with more than 75 Canadian parents and other experts — explores the tremendous pressures that parents are facing these days (all the anxiety, guilt, and feelings of overwhelm) and then proceeds to offer a series of parent-proven solutions that can be tackled at the individual, family, and community level.
Chapters include “Parenting in an Age of Anxiety,” “Work-Life Imbalance,” “The Why of Distracted Parenting,” “How to Boost Your Enjoyment of Parenting,” “The Guilt-Free Guide to Healthier Living,” and “Finding Your Village.”
