‘All Joy and No Fun,’ by Jennifer Senior – NYTimes.com.
This is a New York Times review of a book about modern parenting that’s getting a lot of buzz.
I remember well the client, a talented professional Mom, seeking help for her unhappy son, who sadly – with embarrassment – confessed that she preferred being at work to being at home: “The truth is my workplace feels more like home, but my own home feels like Hell.”
Obviously that’s a bit over the top, but I’m not seeing a ton of delighted parents these days. Very sad.
