For Parents

The Kids Are in Bed: Finding Time for Yourself in the Chaos of Parenting
Author:  Rachel Bertsche  
ISBN: 9781524744014 Recent time-use studies show that even working parents have as many as 30 hours of leisure time a week, yet very few people know how to actually use that time to do something–anything! — because they were still thinking about all the things they should be doing for their kids, their jobs, and their households.Rachel Bertsche constantly found herself in exactly that bind. Using a combination of memoir, interviews with scientists and parenting experts, and input from moms and dads all over the country, Rachel figured out how to transform her own patterns and reconnect to her pre-kids life. In The Kids Are in Bed, other parents can learn how to do the same, and truly enjoy the time after lights out.
