This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challengeparenting, from toddlers to teenswith concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids.

Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes:

A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks—for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college.
Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work.
Clever tips to make the most of in-between time—Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids.
Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 18, 2018 – Professional organizer Morgenstern systematically instructs parents on how to find more opportunities for family time with her proven techniques and real-life experiences. By learning to prioritize and stay away from time and energy traps and "low-value activities," parents, she promises, can take control of their schedules and achieve balance. Morgenstern addresses the challenge in two sections: "Raising a Human Being: Doing Your P.A.R.T." focuses on the four core responsibilities of child-rearing (provide, arrange, relate, and teach) and "Being a Human Being: Fueling Your S.E.L.F." refers to four self-nurturing needs (sleep, exercise, love, and fun), each described and presented with instructive anecdotes about real families' problems and solutions. Also vital are four time-management skills: "selective perfectionism," resisting technology's siren call, making mindful transitions between different child-rearing responsibilities, and delegating. Morgenstern's clever maximum-minimum-moderate triage system parses time-consuming tasks into three levels of effort (for instance, for a child's birthday, the maximum-minimum-moderate choices could be, respectively, baking a cake from scratch, buying supermarket cupcakes, and making cupcakes from a mix). Morgenstern successfully demonstrates how the organizational acumen displayed in her previous books can be usefully applied to the all-important job of parenting.
