Parenting Outside the Lines
No-nonsense, sanity-saving insights from the Washington Post on Parenting columnist--for anyone who''s drowning in parental pressure and advice that doesn''t work. Ever feel overwhelmed by the stress and perfectionism of our overparenting culture--and at the same time, still look for solutions to ease the struggles of everyday family life? Parenting coach and Washington Post columnist Meghan Leahy feels your pain. Like her clients and readers, she grew weary of the endless "shoulds" of modern parenting--along with the simplistic rules and advice that often hurt more than help. Filled with insights based on child development and hard-won lessons in the trenches, this honest guide presents a new approach, offering permission to practice imperfect parenting with a strong dose of common sense, empathy, and laughter. You''ll gain perspective on trusting your gut, picking your battles, and when to question what''s "normal" (as opposed to what works best for your child). Forget impossible standards and dogma, and serving organic salmon to four-year-olds. Forget helicopters, tiger moms, and being "mindful" in the middle of a meltdown (your child''s or your own). Instead, discover relatable insights for staying connected to your child and true to the parent you want to be (and already are).
