Raising Kids: "All Joy And No Fun"

Credit HarperCollins

Jennifer Senior, herself a parent, walks us through the pitfalls of modern parenthood.

The longstanding joke "my kids will need years of therapy to get over me" reflects our main concern about parenting: what are we doing to our children? 

New York Magazine contributing editor Jennifer Senior flips that around completely, questioning what effect the process of parenting has on the people doing the work. 

Her book title alone says a lot: All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood.
