About the Event
Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. But almost none have asked: What are the effects of children on their parents? Join Heard in Rye for an evening with Jennifer Senior, author of “All Joy and No Fun”, as she discusses the many ways children reshape their parents’ lives, whether it’s their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their sense of self. Parents of all ages will learn how to better negotiate marital tensions around child rearing and divisions of labor; a few pointers about social media; but most of all, how to better understand the forces shaping modern parenting.
