My Every­thing: The Par­ent I Want to Be, The Chil­dren I Hope to Raise

Einat Nathan is the moth­er of five chil­dren and a par­ent­ing expert and coun­selor with her own clin­ic. She first pub­lished her book Haimshe­li (Kin­neret Zmo­ra Bitan) in 2018, and it became the nation­al best­seller of the year across all cat­e­gories in Israel, mak­ing her a nation­al celebrity.

My Every­thing res­onat­ed because moth­ers read it, cried and smiled, and dis­cov­ered a way to look at their chil­dren as inde­pen­dent peo­ple, not sole­ly as an exten­sion of who they are or as a call­ing card. Now trans­lat­ed into Eng­lish, My Every­thing is a beau­ti­ful and com­fort­ing read that reminds moth­ers how to be patient with their chil­dren, to try to remain calm in an age of con­stant fear­mon­ger­ing, and to appre­ci­ate and accept each child as an indi­vid­ual, with their own quirks, gifts, and flaws.
