Rage Against the Minivan : Learning to Parent Without Perfection
by Kristen Howerton




Overview -
"Howerton writes unflinchingly about what it means to be raising children in today's world and how to liberate ourselves from the myth of perfect motherhood."--Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed and Love Warrior, founder of Together Rising

In this smart and subversively funny memoir, Kristen Howerton navigates the emotional and sometimes messy waters of motherhood and challenges the idea that there's a "right" way to raise kids. Recounting her successes, trials, mishaps, and hard-won wisdom, this mother of four advocates for letting go of the expectations, the guilt, and the endless race to be the perfect parent to the perfect child in the perfect family.

This book is for
● the parent who loves their kids like crazy but feels like parenting is making them crazy, too
● the parent who said "I will never . . ." and now they have
● the parent who looks like they have it all together but feels like a hot mess on the inside
● the parent who looks like a hot mess on the outside, too
● the parent who asks Am I good enough? Doing enough? Doing it right? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with these children? Are they eighteen yet?

With her signature blend of vulnerability, sarcasm, and insight, Howerton shares her unexpected journey from infertility to adoption to pregnancy to divorce to dealing with the shock and awe of raising teens. As a mom of a multiracial family and as a marriage and family therapist, she tackles the thorny issues parents face today, like hard conversations about racism, disciplining other people's kids, the reality of Dad Privilege, and (never) attaining that elusive work/life balance. Rage Against the Minivan is a permission slip to let it go and allow yourself to be a "good enough" parent, focused on raising happy, kind, loving humans.
