Chaos to Calm is a guide for busy parents that will help them streamline the endless tasks they face every day. By creating more time and less stress, they can spend more hours appreciating their family, making sure they have what they need, and giving themselves the space they need to live their lives with intention and joy.

Chapters are targeted at Efficiency, Habits, Communication, Community, and Self-Care, and include how-tos and simple small tasks anyone can take to lower the frenetic pace of every day and move forward with practical well-thought-out plans that prove everything can get done without losing your cool.

Using examples from a variety of parents as well as her own life, author Jenna Hermans (businesswoman and mother of four!) shows us that calm can be achieved and maintained and that anyone can take control of their busy lives and embrace what really matters.
