Unparenting

Sharing Awkward Truths with Curious Kids

Reema Ahmad
Select Preferred Format

Through her own awkward journey as a confused single parent with mental health issues, Reema Ahmad explores what it means to unravel newer ways of bringing up children-ways that nurture their sense of innocence and curiosity whilst giving them the freedom to choose their own truths. Reema invites you to hop along as she and Imaad, her son, learn to laugh and understand less explored and serious questions regarding abuse, adult relationships, divorce and death that adults often forget to wonder at, and seldom question.
More than anything else, Unparenting is a vibrant, whacky testimony to a parent-child relationship where the child leads and the parent follows. Written in the form of deeply personal, engaging and often humorous essays that span the life of the mother and child from when he was seven-year-old till he turns fourteen, the book is a powerful reminder of what it feels like to be lost and misunderstood as a child and how important it is to challenge parents’ knowledge about everything.
