Description

Product Description

Are you a mom who does it all? This is the book for you.

It''s impossible to deny―most moms continue to do way more household work and childcare than most dads. Working full time, raising kids, cooking dinner, making sure every appointment and activity is lined up and that everyone gets there on time... no wonder you''re tired! 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 explains how we got into this mess in the first place, and how we can get out of it through a calm, systematic approach to teaching our families how to take initiative and contribute in meaningful ways. Dr. Phelan 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
  • How to manager resistant or traditionalist dads

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.

Review

"Tom Phelan''s book effectively challenges the stories mothers tell themselves about what an ideal mother should look like -- in short, the Maternal Identity. But even more valuable are his practical guidelines for releasing mothers from their perceived responsibilities! Successfully implementing Phelan''s methods will increase kids'' independence, improve and deepen fathers'' family relationships, and make mothers much happier and more fulfilled." - Sarah Hart-Unger, MD, pediatrician and co-host of Best of Both Worlds Podcast

"Phelan brings his common-sense yet practical advice to a well-worn parenting issue. As with ­"1-2-3," this ­latest will fly off the shelves, so stock up on multiple copies." - Library Journal

"I predict this will change the lives of many families―mine included―for the better. A must read." - Emily Oster, New York Times bestselling author of Expecting Better and Cribsheet

Just finished Dr. Phelan''s, The Manager Mom Epidemic, and loved it. As a child psychologist and mom of two, I found the book really supportive and encouraging. The goals the book lays out (better family bonding and affection, a reasonable distribution of labor, and kids growing in independence and competence) are actually reachable. Besides being funny and easy to read, the illustrations, short chapters, and frequent summaries meant I could hop in and out of it as I had time. As someone who rarely finishes a self-help book, I found myself inspired all the way until the final sentences. I bought a copy for my best friend and have recommended it to many families already!

Base idea is very good but very flippant and boring
Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2021
I love and agree with the base idea and the author’s solution to it. But I have a problem with the writing style - too flippant and boring. Ok for one time read.
