In the end, Kim and Dawn realized they weren’t equipped to tell other’s tales and decided to embarrass themselves instead. Though the stories they collected didn’t end up being written, the process provided the inspiration for their book’s ultimate purpose: making the motherhood experience more fulfilling, less stressful. Being in a safe setting with open-hearted women revealed to Kim and Dawn the triad to happier parenting: honesty (be truthful in your words both online and in person), friendship (spend lots of time with friends – both old and new) and self-care (put your needs alongside those of your children, as opposed to where they’ve been – well behind). To encourage others to live out this triad, the authors created the mindset now known “conscious unparenting™” – in other words, being a ‘70s mom with a 21st century twist.
The book is a compilation of the author’s deepest, darkest parenting stories told with humor and raw honesty. It’s also a call to action, as they encourage their readers to pledge themselves to the conscious unparenting™ movement.
