In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challenge―parenting, from toddlers to teens―with concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids.

Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes:
  • A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks―for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college.
  • Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work. 
  • Clever tips to make the most of in-between time―Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids. 
  • Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.
I don’t know about you, I sometimes find it a huge struggle to balance life, my responsibilities, and kids. Time to Parent is the ultimate time management book on how to balance everything.  In sections 1 & 2 you learn about undivided attention, how to love and listen, and so much more.

Sections 3 & 4 break down the book into eight manageable areas: provide, arrange, relate, and teach, (P.A.R.T.) followed by sleep, exercise, love, and fun (S.E.L.F.). The first four areas are geared more toward the child. These parts focus on many things like teaching your kids, how to arrange appointments, provide a home, and so much more. The second four areas are geared more for the parent. You learn how to enjoy life separate from being a mother or father. That way, you are more prepared for the day when your child leaves home to start their lives. 

There are also several assessment tests to help parents discover the areas that they may need more help in, or perhaps areas that you are thriving in. As we all know, parenting can be so many things. Parenting is daunting, exhausting, exciting, and a blessing all rolled into one. This book helps you achieve your goals and set skills that can make the job of parenting a little more manageable. This book is full of personal experiences that make for amazing and straightforward advice.
