Moms, do you feel tired? Overwhelmed? Have you continually put off the things you need to do for you? Do you feel like it's all worth it because your kids are happy? Are you "over" being a mother? If you answered yes to these questions, you're not alone. Parents today want to create the ideal childhood for their children. Women strive to be the picture-perfect Pinterest mother that looks amazing, hosts the best birthday parties in town, posts the most "liked" photos, and serves delicious, nutritious home-cooked meals in her neat, organized home after ferrying the kids to school and a host of extracurricular activities on time.
This drive, while noble, can also be destructive, causing stress and anxiety that leads to "mommy burnout". Psychologist and family counselor Dr. Sheryl Ziegler is well-versed in the stress that moms face, and the burden of guilt they carry because they often feel like they aren't doing enough for their kids' happiness. A mother of three herself, Dr. Z - as she's affectionately known by her many patients - recognizes and understands that modern moms are all too often plagued by exhaustion, failure, isolation, self-doubt, and a general lack of self-love, and their families are also feeling the effects, too.
Over the last 19 years working with families and children, Dr. Z has devised a prescriptive program for addressing "mommy burnout" - teaching moms that they can learn to re-energize themselves and still feel good about their families and their lives. In this warm and empathetic guide, she examines this modern epidemic among mothers who put their children's happiness above their own, and offers empowering, proven solutions for alleviating this condition, saving marriages and keeping kids happy in the process.

I have been looking for something like this my whole life
If you feel like motherhood has sucked everything out of you this book is for you. It let’s you know we as mothers are not alone. It is okay to feel this way. You get to see how several mothers have dealt with this. Why is this book not a best seller... I don’t know but it should be. It was so addicting I binge read it in one day
