THE KIDS ARE IN BED
Finding Time for Yourself in the Chaos of Parenting
Journalist, bestselling writer and mother of two, Rachel Bertsche, tries to find calm among the chaos and reclaim a personal life while raising her young kids, and offers solutions for how all parents can do the same, once The Kids Are in Bed.
Recent time-use studies show that even working parents have as many as 30 hours of leisure time a week, yet very few people know how to actually use that time to do something - anything! - pleasurable and fulfilling. In an original survey conducted for this book, 71 percent of parents said their free time didn't feel free at all, because they were still thinking about all the things they should be doing for their kids, their jobs, and their households.
Rachel Bertsche constantly found herself in exactly that bind. Using a combination of memoir, interviews with scientists and parenting experts, and input from moms and dads all over the country, Rachel figured out how to transform her own patterns and reconnect to her pre-kids life. In THE KIDS ARE IN BED, other parents can learn how to do the same, and truly enjoy the time after lights out. And while much of the research in the book, as well as the examples, are American, we still feel that it does provide a ton of valuable takeaways for parents all around the world.
Rachel Bertsche is the bestselling author of MWF Seeking BFF and Jennifer, Gwyneth, and Me. She is also a journalist and editor whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Parents, Marie Claire, More, Teen Vogue, Seventeen, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Fitness, Women's Health, New York magazine, The Huffington Post, and more.
