Discuss "All Joy No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenting by Jennifer Senior" by

Perhaps you've heard this author recently making the rounds on news shows and late night....In this book packed with interesting anecdotes and fascinating research, she examines the effects that children can have on their parents - marriages, friendships, sense of self, career, etc. Even if you don't read the book, let's meet and discuss the topic, and I'll guide you through the highlights. How can we find, focus on, and even create JOYful moments with our kids when day-to-day parenting can truthfully be such a drag??? One review states, "Meticulously researched yet imbued with emotional intelligence, All Joy and No Fun makes us reconsider some of our culture's most basic beliefs about parenthood, all while illuminating the profound ways children deepen and add purpose to our lives. By focusing on parenthood, rather than parenting, the book is original and essential reading for mothers and fathers of today—and tomorrow."
