“…what I found in academic literature really spoke to that that there is tension between roles. And that is a part of what is so challenging for working parents. But there’s also these opportunities within that tension, to access really beautiful things, greater creativity, greater resilience, greater skill sets in both are parenting and work roles. And so what this book represents is both a psychologically based book about working parenthood and a positive psychology based book for working parents.”
