A roadmap for parents who want to feel less pressure and more joy during the intense early years of childrearing. Why is it that research suggests people who don't have kids are happier than people who do? Olivia Scobie provides practical solutions for parents who find themselves pushing beyond their capacity to meet impossible standards and challenges parents to shift their thinking from child-centred to family-centred. By naming today's unrealistic parenting expectations as impossible from the get-go, Impossible Parenting creates the space to acknowledge harmful expectations for new parents and begins a conversation that focuses on healing and doing the best one can with the resources one has available.
