Parenting the Tribe! All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood

  • June 8, 2014 · 10:00 AM

"...the truth is, there's little even the most organized people can do to prepare themselves for having children." -Jennifer Senior.

In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? Janet Zimmerman, LCSW-R, FEGS Partners in Caring social worker, will use this book as a focal point for a JWOW program for parents. We will discuss the book's fascinating findings to tackle the realities of modern day parenthood: we love our kids, and they make us crazy, and it's all our fault. Come join in an interactive discussion of why parenthood can be both the most frustrating and most fulfilling experience. Together let's share ways not only to survive the journey, but to feel gratitude, and yes, joy, from the hardest job in the world. Brunch will also be served.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
