Family serenity now!
‘21 days to happiness!’
‘30 days to a happier family!’
‘12 weeks to a better you’.
Wow these are big promises, and will probably sell books!
But as the saying goes, ‘if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’.
While parenting self-help authors are well meaning in offering their wisdom and expertise, and certainly most suggestions are well intended.
I am concerned by this ever increasing expectation that we need to somehow be ‘happier’, and that if family life is not ‘all peaches and cream’ there is something wrong with us.
