"Peacock Parent's powerful message - that it's ok to not do it all - is one that women everywhere need to hear and embrace. As a working mom navigating a demanding schedule, I found myself overwhelmed by the neverending list of tasks that come with raising a family. Peacock Parent motivated me to start delegating tasks I don't have time for or simply don't enjoy doing. I hired a house manager, began outsourcing tasks I would normally do myself, and embraced the idea that just because I can do something doesn't mean I should. This shift in perspective has not only lightened the workload for my husband and myself but also strengthened our family bond and allowed us to be fully present for our kids. Peacock Parent's empowering philosophy proves that balance and happiness are achievable when we relinquish the myth that we need to do it all."

“I use a virtual family assistant for the kind of tasks that take me into analysis paralysis- like swim lessons in Palm Springs or hotels that accommodate families. I haven't needed it for anything local. I'm in the loop on kid's activities and house management today...but who knows what tomorrow holds.”

“When I started following Peacock Parent it was such a relief to learn tangible, real-life examples of ways to outsource house chores that allow you to put value on your own time AND make you a more joyful and present parent. I also love that there is no shame or guilt with how they outsource. I appreciate the candor and honesty around the “why” and it puts it all into perspective. Sometimes it’s not just about being a better parent, sometimes it’s just about creating a more joyful life for yourself. There shouldn’t be guilt in finding that. I highly recommend it for any parent.”

"We have the means that not all of my friends have. And so finding people who I can connect with and relate to that have the same level of job, scope of role, and expectations as myself and my husband...that's been interesting to navigate. My friends have great tips, but I also know I could probably afford to do things a little bit differently. I've learned from Peacock Parent that I can outsource more things. And by doing that, that gives me more time to spend with my son and my husband."

"As a new parent, what I struggled with was setting clear expectations with our nanny about the home management aspect of the job from the very beginning. Outside of childcare, there were lots of things that disappointed me and didn't meet our standards, but I would avoid the conversation because we needed childcare coverage. But Christine's parenting guides helped bridge that conversation in a professional manner. We were able to provide our nanny (turned family assistant) with a clear task list, and now my partner and I aren't dealing with hard conversations in our own home."

“I think that it’s so powerful to see it’s possible to maintain a work and home life balance (filled with the goodness you had before kids). Just seeing Christine do that and then seeing how much her kids love her is helpful for my parenting journey. "

“There are many parenting guides out there with a focus on home management, but Christine goes beyond management and into household - and life - optimization. Rather than scheduling help around traditional schedules, which result in a caregiver spending more time with the kids to free up parents to handle the daily tasks, Christine's advice flips the script. Her creative approach to when and how domestic help is utilized cuts out of the slog of daily tasks and gives me back quality family time with my kids and husband.”
