Cristina Tcheyan, Employee Activist

"It's phenomenal to see parenthood through the lens of brain scans, the role of parents in society through academic analysis of social norms"

"Amy's memories, inner dialogue, and authentic self are unveiled in 'Tending.' She shares her stories with beautiful texture, and layers science to showcase the physiology underpinning the human experience. It's phenomenal to see parenthood through the lens of brain scans, the role of parents in society through academic analysis of social norms. And the ways in which bias against parents shows up in the workplace, squandering the skills parenting unlocks. 'Tending' is both a memoir, and a movement."

Michael Walsh, CEO Cariloop

"Absolutely captivating. The stories and anecdotes she so eloquently, and VERY vulnerably, shares with us about her experiences, observations, and learnings as a mom and business leader should be read, and then re-read."

"Absolutely captivating. Amy Henderson's "Tending" outlines in perfect detail the heart-wrenching underbelly of what it's really like to balance the joys and perils of parenting with the intensity and persistence of working in today's society. The stories and anecdotes she so eloquently, and VERY vulnerably, shares with us about her experiences, observations, and learnings as a mom and business leader should be read, and then re-read, by everyone. No matter if you've ever been a parent or caregiver before, you won't be able to turn away from Amy's hauntingly accurate depiction of the world that so many mom's, dad's, and families are living in today."

Lori Mihalich-Levin, Mindful Return

"A must-read for all humans, but especially for any parent who wants to feel seen and anyone who manages parents in the workplace"

"There are no platitudes, cliched portrayals of motherhood, or impractical advice here. Instead, in Tending, Amy Henderson gifts us with a profoundly beautiful, jarring, and at the same time, incredibly informative narrative As a professional, a mother, and an advocate, I saw myself in its pages, and also learned so much about parenthood's ability to shape our brains and our career-useful skills. Henderson doesn't just tell us how acknowledging truth, vulnerability, and pain can change hearts and minds, she paints it for us in vivid color. This masterful page-turner is a must-read for all humans, but especially for any parent who wants to feel seen and anyone who manages parents in the workplace."
