” Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In The New York Times Best Seller All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior asks: what are the effects of children on their parents?
In this talk, Senior will tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents’ lives, whether it’s their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half-century have radically altered the roles of today’s mothers and fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and far less clear.”
