Summary
"What happens when one frustrated dad turns his kids' lives upside down in search of a new way to be together? Slate editor Dan Kois sets out with his wife and daughters on a journey around the world to learn what it takes to be a family. Dan Kois and his wife always did their best for their kids. Busy professionals living in the DC suburbs, they scheduled their children's activities wisely, and, when they weren't arguing over screen time, the Kois family-Dan; his wife, Alia; and their two preteen daughters - could each be found searching for their own happiness. But aren't families supposed to achieve happiness together? In this eye-opening, heartwarming, and very funny book, the fractious, loving Kois family lands in New Zealand, th Netherlands, Costa Rica, and small-town Kansas. Their goal? To get out of their rut of busyness and distractedness and to see how other families live outside their East Coast parenting bubble."--From jacket flap
