‘Conversations With Friends’ Star Jemima Kirke Recommends Parents Not To Read Parenting Books While Raising Their Children: “Parenting Is A Perpetual Battle With Loss”

Well-known actor and director Jemima Kirke, who is gearing up to appear as ‘Melissa’ in highly-expected series ‘Conversations With Friends‘ based on the book of the same name by Sally Rooney, jumped into her verified Instagram account with a piece of “parenting advice.”

On May 29, the actor, who gained international fame through her role as ‘Jessa Johansson’ in Lena Dunham-created TV show ‘Girls,’ released a two-photo gallery including photos of herself with her daughters Rafella Israel Mosberg and Memphis Kirke Mosberg.

Alongside the TBT photos, the actor confessed that the years 2012 – 2013 were lost years for her. She clarified this by referring to her parenthood experience:

“If I could pass on any knowledge to new parents it’s that parenting is a perpetual battle with loss. Loss of spontaneity, autonomy, your body, your mind, your ideals, your plans, order, the safety of your baby in your womb, memory, control, the other sock, friends, your newborn, your toddler, your preteen, etc. take lots of pictures.”

Recommending her fans and followers to write some memories down regarding their children, Kirke also stated that there is no use in reading parenting books. In her own words:

“Stop rushing, clean less, and apologize to your kids when you f*ck up. Also don’t read parenting books.”

The mother-of-two – 11-year-old Rafella and 9-year-old Memphis – received a good number of positive feedback; so much so that one of her followers wrote that she wishes “more parents would admit this out loud to people.”
