We love our kids, but do we love our role as parents? Many parents crave a greater sense of happiness in their daily lives. KJ Dell’Antonia, the former lead editor of the New York Times Motherlode blog, decided to dig deep to find out if we could change our family life so that it is full of the joy we’d always hoped for. In this session, she will share the nine common problem spots that cause parents the most grief, and offer doable steps to make them better. Whether it’s getting everyone out the door on time in the morning, or making sure chores and homework get done without another battle, this session will show that having a family isn’t just about raising great kids and churning them out at destination: success. It’s about experiencing joy–real joy, the kind you look back on, look forward to, and live for – along the way.
