Jennifer Senior’s book, All Joy And No Fun: The Paradox Of Modern Parenting has been hailed as an insightful analysis of how parenting today is challenging in ways that previous generations never would have imagined. But when did you last have time to read an insightful analysis of anything? Fortunately, in her TED Talk, Senior pretty neatly summarizes many of the book’s points. All 18 minutes are worth watching, but if you’re truly ADD, skip ahead to the 9 minute mark. That’s where she breaks down why “the paradox” makes relationships with our partners just as challenging as the ones we have with our kids, and what you can do about it.
