Check out this smart take on All Joy and No Fun by Jessica from School of Smock.
I love this smart take by +Jessica Smock. New parenting norms are making our children less creative, less passionate, less brave. And they are making us miserable, too. Something's got to give. #BrilliantBookClub

Here is what +Sarah Rudell Beach of Left Brain Buddha has to say about this month's book, All Joy and No Fun.
+Sarah Rudell Beach nails it with this review of All Joy and No Fun. There is ancient wisdom in  all the best practices for parenting. I think we make it harder for ourselves than it needs to be. What do you think? +The Brilliant Book Club

Today we discuss ALL JOY AND NO FUN by Jennifer Senior. I (+Urban Moo Cow) loved this book (for a change!) and write in my review about the three reasons she taught me to keep my toddler around (despite the floor-crying episodes). Would love to hear what you think.

The Good Mother Myth: Are you susceptible? Today we discuss the new book, edited by Avital Norman Nathman. 

In her essay, +Urban Moo Cow discusses another, related myth that is more compelling to her.

+Urban Moo Cow did not like Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink. Come read why not and check out the other posters, most of whom loved it!
