The Working Parent’s Survival Guide: How to Parent Smarter Not Harder

“Cleare offers spot-on advice for working parents in her insightful debut. Cleare’s advice is practical and specific, and her tone encouraging. This will be a lifeline for parents struggling to find balance.” Publishers Weekly

“I love the “can do” approach and the lack of judgement about working mothers. I love that it is about parenting and not mothering. Every chapter is full of easy-to-implement small fixes, which I am betting will add up to a big improvement in everyone’s well-being.” Rachel Connelly, PhD, coauthor of “Professor Mommy: Finding Work-Family Balance in Academia”

“This book contains a wealth of strategies that can help alleviate the daily stresses that come with parenting and also help guide children in taking ownership of their lives and developing a high self-esteem and sense of fulfillment.” Douglas Haddad, award-winning educator and author of “The Ultimate Guide to Raising Teens and Tweens”

“The Working Parent’s Survival Guide is a must-read for anyone who’s struggled to balance the demands of work and the pull of family…. Cleare offers readers proven strategies for (re)connecting with their kids and reclaiming home-time from work-think. Her advice for fostering a less-stressed, more fulfilling environment at home should be required reading for busy parents of little humans.” Deborah Vlock, author of “Parenting Children with Mental Health Challenges: A Guide to Life with Emotionally Complex Kids”
