To Win At Parenting, You Have To Get ‘Weird’

Hillary Frank wrote a book on how to survive parenting called, “Weird Parenting Wins: Bath Tub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks From the Parenting Trenches.”

Frank also hosts the podcast, “The Longest Shortest Time,” a talk show that laughs, cries, and shares about the daily challenges associated with raising children

She pulled the advice in her book from stories submitted by moms and dads everywhere — who likely listen to her show.

What compelled Frank to write this book? As a first-time parent, she felt failed by the variety of parenting books out there that she read.

None of the tips or hacks she hoped would help her to succeed at parenting really worked. What did work? Whatever seemed to accomplish her end game with her child, and this helped her conclude that there are no parenting hacks.

There are only parents and children trying their best to make it through the day, and sometimes that means getting weird about what works.

In some situations, such as being a mother or a father, the end justifies the means. And, if that means adds up to a nap, even better.

The book’s promise and key takeaway advice found in “Weird Parenting Wins”? Focus on the creative side of parenting. In short, there are no right or wrong answers. Do what works for you and your family to survive.
