Media and reviews for Happy Parents, Happy Kids by Ann Douglas.

HAPPY PARENTS, HAPPY KIDS...makes the case that we’ve been taking too narrow a view on what self-care looks like for parents. Douglas shows us that it is indeed possible to take care of yourself while raising kids, and that there’s compelling evidence to show how doing so is a benefit to children and grown-ups alike.
