🤰Have any questions about lupus and pregnancy? 🤰Below you'll find our top 10 doctor-reviewed tips for lupus pregnancy planning and success!
We all know that running a household and parenting kids
requires endless emotional, mental, and physical effort! Unfortunately, without
an explicit negotiation of how the workload should be split, research shows
that women still do the bulk of childcare and domestic work, even in two-earner
families in which both parents work full-time! 🧹🧽 🍼
For moms in this community, of course, there's the added burden of living with a chronic illness. Taking care of your own health may require dozens of appointments, trips to the pharmacy, long phone calls arguing with your insurance company or copay assistance program, physical or occupational therapy, and more - not to mention a very legitimate need for down time to rest and care for yourself!
Based on copious research, interviews, and testing, Rodsky has developed a system that offers couples a way to divide up all domestic responsibilities - or "cards" - and, most importantly, to divide them FAIRLY. Rodsky encourages each mom to grab on to this mantra and repeat it again, and again, and again: "I do not have to do it all." Fair Play will help you learn how to make this mantra a reality within your own home.
Here is a list of every children's book we have reviewed on our site in one place, to make it easier to browse all the options. All of these books could be considered resources for helping kids cope with having a parent with a chronic illness, and often they can be useful even if the specific diagnosis mentioned isn't your own. But please take a look at each individual review to find out if the book will be a good fit for your family!
