It's impossible to deny-most moms continue to do way more household work and childcare than most dads. But despite all the books and articles lamenting the crushing mental load and emotional labor women bear for their families, no one has come up with a plan to actually make things change. Until now.
The Manager Mom Epidemic is the first book that not only acknowledges the fact that moms are burning out, but shows you how to transfer responsibility for daily tasks from yourself to your partner and also (gasp!) your kids. Clinical psychologist and child discipline expert Thomas W. Phelan, PhD walks you through real-life situations and shows you how to step back from the things that are dragging you down. For example:
● Your Maternal Identity-the things you tell yourself you have to do in order to be a "good" mom
● The oppressive trap of chronic supervision
● Our society's curious underestimation of children's capabilities
● How to eliminate primary childcare with tweens and teens
Realistic and simple enough to implement in your home right away, The Manager Mom Epidemic provides a roadmap for you to take your life back and proves that the happiest families share the work and the fun equally.
