At last, the truth about parenting for parents, wannabe parents, and the cheerfully child-free. In this fearlessly honest program, Dr. Susan Jeffers breaks the conspiracy of silence about the real and potential woes of child-rearing and pulls no punches about how difficult parenthood is for many. With care and compassion, she reveals the insidious guilt traps set by some child-care "experts" and the child-centered society we inhabit. She questions many fashionable myths and half-truths that add to a parent's sense of inadequacy and guilt, and offers valuable survival tools to cope with it all.
I'm Okay, You're a Brat explains why: parenthood is a joy for some and a headache for others, what you put in doesn't necessarily come out, our relationships with our spouses often suffer when children enter the picture, our lives change so drastically when a child is born, we can love our kids yet hate parenthood, and we can have great fulfillment in life with or without children.
"...an honest, politically incorrect, no-holds-barred book. If you [listen to] it before you have children, it may change your life. If you [listen to] it after you have children, it may save you years of therapy.' (author Warren Farrell, Ph.D.)
