Product description


Finally a book that provides a well researched and honest perspective so parents can give themselves permission to stop raising children from a place of should, and instead from a place that equally prioritized the wellness of parent(s) and child. A wonderful, shame-free look at parenting and mental health. ― Bianca Sprague, co-founder of Bebo Mia

Impossible Parenting is truly the inclusive, well-researched, informed book for how to parent in the way all parents need; with compassion, acceptance and space for the person you are inside of and outside of your role as parent. ― Amanda Munday, author of Day Nine

This will prove a helpful volume to parents in the trenches. ― Library Journal

Validates how difficult parenting is ... a really helpful book. ― CBC
