To hear/see Kay on a few of the platforms that have been kind to include Kay in their line-up link below:

 

On the nonfiction front, I did a lot of starting and skimming. A chunk of the middle of “Girl in Glass.” A few pages of “When Kids Call the Shots.” Pretty nearly all of Kay Wills Wyma’s “I’m Happy for You (Sort of … Not Really).” I loved that book’s message: We live in an age of discontent and envy, and if you can think (and better yet, mean) “I’m happy for you,” you’re so much better off.

Speaking

Comparison is the shortest route to a long funk. Our friends become our audience (or judges) and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in comparison-infested social media and no wonder we’re drained and feeling isolated. But we have options. With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, younger, and ever better, Obsessive Comparison Disorder has taken over homes across the globe. With candor and relatable stories, Kay Wyma shares tips and strategies on how to recapture contentment in our lives and in our homes. Join Kay Wyma on a candid, humorous exploration of comparison’s traps and others-oriented solutions.
With the greatest of intentions and in the name of love, parents hover, race in to save, arrange for success, overprotect, and enable their children. Take one frustrated mom add some overly messy rooms, a few well-placed whines and five unintentionally enabled kids and welcome to one family’s adventure to stop entitlement. Because kids can do more than they (or we) think they can.
Fill this in strategies on how to recapture contentment in our lives and in our homes. Join Kay Wyma on a candid, humorous exploration of comparison’s traps and others-oriented solutions.
