So, you're losing your sh*t with your kids. You scream, you shout, you snap at them. You're cranky and irritable more often than you'd like to admit. You know how you want to parent; you want to be a calmer, more rational and intentional parent, but no matter how hard you try, you can't help it. You keep losing your sh*t.
Just remember: YOU ARE NOT A BAD PARENT.
How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t With Your Kids is as honest and compassionate as it is pragmatic about helping you work through your sh*t to be a more present and positive parent. Increasingly relevant to today's parents, who are more overloaded, overwhelmed, and overworked than ever before, Carla Naumburg has the antidote to the feelings of complete despair and rage.
How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t With Your Kids is a simple, accessible and humorous guide to more effective and mindful parenting.

Funny, honest and real, this is the book I needed when my kids were toddlers - and middle graders - and yesterday afternoon. Naumburg reminds me that I have to deal with my own shit to have a fighting chance at helping my kids deal with theirs and she doesn't shy away from hard truths and challenges about the process, or skimp on practical ideas for getting there. I'm going to need multiple copies of this one - one for me, and one for pretty much everyone else I know. -- KJ Dell'Antonia, author of How to Be a Happier Parent: Raising a Family, Having a Life and Loving (Almost) Every Minute
