In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challenge―parenting, from toddlers to teens―with concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids.
Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes:
A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks―for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college.
Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work.
Clever tips to make the most of in-between time―Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids.
Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.

From School Library Journal
“You won’t find any corny categorization of time management personality types in her work, no Meyers-Briggs- or 5 Love Languages-type buckets into which people can slot themselves…But there are patterns Ms. Morgenstern has identified that can help people understand and improve the way they approach time management.”―The New York Times
“Morgenstern’s many fans will appreciate the organizational insights she brings to the parenting arena as well as the concrete ideas for finding more time for family and self-care.” ―Library Journal *starred review*
"Julie Morgenstern provides what all parents need: realistic, practical strategies that will help them take better care of their children and―just as important―themselves." ―Lisa Damour, PhD and author of Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood
"As we all know, parenting is a daunting task, but Morgenstern's bite-size, achievable goals and skill levels are simple to digest. Backed by scientific data and personal experience, the book is full of straightforward advice presented in an intriguing way...A multi-part, common-sense approach to parenting that addresses a wide variety of the issues parents face in their complex lives." ―Kirkus Reviews
“Type-A parents, rejoice! Morgenstern brings her expert organizational and time-management tips and tricks to her first parenting book… This book is for everyone seeking balance while dealing with the reality of raising children of any age." ―Booklist

This book served as a great outline for me to immediately implement a few of your strategies. Keeping all the balls in the air in my home is a really demanding endeavor, which leaves very little time to have fun, relax, rest and have downtime. The importance of being present and able to relate to my child are areas that I knew I needed to work on. Julie's parenting time matrix made this instantly feel doable.
Thank you for bringing such awareness to parents in a direct, firm, loving and encouraging way!
