“It was lovely seeing you and your family, Jenny. Let’s catch up again soon. And remember, ‘All work and no play makes Jack ... an International Human Rights Lawyer!’”
Jenny is a busy mum. A visit from her friend the Tiger Mum makes Jenny feel she’s not doing enough for her own children. If they haven’t mastered at least two instruments, three languages, and read all of the classics before university, how will they ever succeed in life?! With some help from her family, Jenny realises how easy it is to get caught up in the anxiety of parenting and that what is important is that her children are growing up in a warm, loving environment. This humorous look at overanxious parenting helps put everyday stresses about children’s achievements into perspective.
