Mom Always Knows received a free copy of Trials of the Working Parent for review but all opinions are 100% our own.
Trials of the Working Parent is where it’s at for the Working Moms out there today! K.C. Dreisbach, a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, writes this book from the heart from her own experiences as a working mom and with help of hundreds of other working moms and families. If you are seeking answers to questions about how to raise young children and keep the work-life balance as you work then you have come to the right place! You don’t have to sacrifice your career according to Dreisbach!
A Working Mom, myself, this book was like a breath of fresh air. I have struggled with so many of the topics that are introduced throughout the quick and easy read, especially the guilt! As women, many of us feel “guilt” for wanting to or having to work or we feel the stress/guilt of looking for and using a daycare center. Whole chapters are devoted to these important topics to help us out!
A Book for all Working Moms
Other chapters and tips within you will find in Trials… include Separation Anxiety, Breastfeeding & the Workplace, Your Second Job…Home, Quality Time is Family Time, To Schedule or Not to Schedule, Managing Your Children’s Sleep Habits, Quick Tips on Discipline, The Silent Predators: Depression, Anxiety & Psychosis, and Finding happiness Amongst the Stress.
If you are looking for a book you won’t be able to put down that is packed with tested tips from not only a seasoned professional, but a real MOM, then this is the book for you! Get answers to questions like:
- Can I have a successful career while raising happy kids?
- Do I have PostPartum Depression?
- How do I discipline my child?
- How can I develop a better bedtime routine?

My sister now is having big troubles raising, and even dealing with her 2-year-old little girl, so this book must come in hands. It’s just a pity that I can’t join in this giveaway of yours, though I would try to access this book as soon as possible. I hope it will be a useful tool for my sis.
Thanks for your giveaway anyway!
I am not a mum yet so can not even imagine the struggles but I have always thought I want to do both, maintain my career and be a mum but only time will tell.

This looks lie a good self help book. As a mom as a woman life is hard. We get pulled in every direction and guidance and reassurance is always nice to have.

This is a wonderful book for working parents with children of all ages. As mothers we constantly pulled in a million different directions. We’re challenged every single day to find a work/life balance that’s sustainable. I’ll be sharing the title of this book with several of my friends.
