Join Our Twitter Party: Parenting Without Borders

We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the author of Parenting Without Borders: Surprising Lessons Parents Around the World Can Teach Us by Christine Gross-Loh.  In her book, she takes readers on a multicultural tour of the world’s best parenting practices – from Finland, Sweden and Germany to France, Japan, China, Italy and beyond to examine how international parents successfully foster creativity, discipline, independence, resilience and academic excellence in their children. During this party, we’ll get right to the heart of and dissect the matters we care most about when it comes to raising children: life skills, eating habits, manners, expectations, mom guilt, sleeping and our obsessions with praise (too much? not enough?). We’ll learn what we’re doing right and what we’re possibly doing wrong, and we’ll all certainly come away with a new slate of practices and goals. We have three FABULOUS moderators guiding our discussion: Carol Cain from Girl Gone Travel (@carolacain) Mara Gorman from Mother of All Trips (@motherofalltrip) Katja Presnal from Skimbaco Lifestyle (@skimbaco) In addition, we’ll be giving away amazing prizes every 10 minutes including: This book captures the essence of our mission and raison d’existence and we can’t wait to get the party started.

lost in suburbia We’re thrilled to be working with Tracy Beckerman, author of the new momoir” titled Lost in Suburbia A Momior, How I got Pregnant, Lost Myself and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs.  In the book, she takes her readers on a humorous ride as she recounts settling into her new role as a stay-at-home mom in the suburbs, grappling with self-identity issues, and rediscovering her passions in life. Can you relate? Did you leave work to stay home with the kids? Then, did you feel like you lost a part of who you are or have an identity crisis? And, how did you deal with it? How did you get your groove back? Or, are you still trying? With heartfelt candidness and an irreverent sense of humor, Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir, tells the tales of one woman striving to reinvent her life after motherhood. From losing all interest in her once stylish wardrobe, making reluctant friends with the minivan-obsessed, scrunchie-wearing, suburban moms, and partying just a bit too hard her first weekend away from the kids, Tracy divulges her relatable, funny and heartwarming missteps in parenting and daily life. We’ll be hosting a twitter party in the book and Tracy’s honor on Tuesday night, April 2nd and the theme is: Ditch Your Mom Jeans and Get Ready to Get Your Cool Back!  You can RSVP here.  We’ll be giving away copies of Lost in Suburbia every ten minutes, and the grand prize is a $150 SpaFinder Wellness Gift Card that can be used at over 20,000 spas, yoga, Pilates or fitness studios and more around the world.
