ZagZig Parenting invites you to explore a married couple’s contemporary perspective on parenting through comical vignettes that share their differences, struggles, mistakes, and failures (with raw feedback from the kids).

 

Written by Kori, a career-driven mom, with commentary from Mike, an over-twenty-year primary caregiver to their four children, this book shows work-life integration from a different lens and creates a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment to reimagine traditional family frameworks, including dad as the dude who does the dishes and other duties while mom makes the moola.


These genuine, transparent, and vulnerable stories about life as a nontraditional family aim to paint a picture of everyday chaos, provide comic relief, and permit parents to thrive as they embrace their perceived shortcomings in the context of work-family flow. Parenting issues don’t discriminate. All parents experience similar challenges, regardless of their family dynamics.
