An all-in-one resource for every working mother and father.
Sure, there are plenty of parenting books out there. But as working moms and dads, we've never had a trusted, go-to guide all our own―one that coaches us on how to do well at work, be the loving and engaged parents we want to be, and remain true to ourselves in the process.
Enter Workparent. Whether you're planning a family, pushing for promotion during your kids' teenage years, or at any phase in between, Workparent provides all the advice and assurance you'll need to combine children and career in your own, authentic way. Whatever your field or family structure, you'll learn how to:
- Find a childcare arrangement you fully trust
- Build a strong support team, at home and on the job
- Advocate for advancement―and flexibility
- Step up at work while keeping your family healthy and whole
- Tame guilt, self-doubt, worry, and other difficult emotions
- Navigate big transitions: the return from leave, a promotion or job change, or the arrival of a second child
- Manage day-to-day pressures, like scheduling, mealtimes, homework, and more
- Find―and really use―time off
- Feel more capable, calm, and in control
Written by Daisy Dowling, a top executive coach, talent expert, and working mom, Workparent answers all of your questions and feels like a good talk with your favourite mentor. Finally, the handbook you need to thrive as a working parent.

In her latest book, Daisy Dowling deconstructs the conflicts between parenting and work and illuminates how both parts of our lives can coexist and feed one another.

Workparent offers practical and extremely valuable detailed advice on how to navigate each stage of being a working parent. As a working parent and as a human resources leader, I found myself nodding as I read through much of the wisdom Dowling lays out, from setting personal boundaries and owning your narrative to establishing your 'Village' as a way to ensure you have the support you need from before birth up through the teenage years. This book speaks to you as a whole person and encourages you to think of yourself as a whole person as well. It is only from this place that any of us can hope to live fulfilled, integrated personal and work lives. — Laila Tarraf, Chief People Officer, Allbirds
