How can parents stay joyful when they work two jobs and spend their weekends at doctor appointments? When they're late for work or the toilet overflowed again? How can they stay positive when they've had no free time or less than 4 hours of sleep? When there's pee on the carpet or they haven't had a real conversation with their partner in a week? In Joy Fixes for Weary Parents, family therapist and parenting blogger Erin Leyba shows moms and dads the strategies, thoughts, and tools she's developed over her years of counseling families that will help them stay joyful ? in spite of everything. In 101 short simple chapters, this book integrates diverse frameworks and tools from mindfulness, Internal Family Systems therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and life cycle perspectives naturally without being obvious or preachy. It illuminates concepts through examples and stories. Using these methods, parents can reorient themselves to a state of calm, humor, and peace ? a second consciousness ? and stay focused on their priorities. They learn ways to use joy as a focal point, a destination, and as fuel for their relationships.
