The Greater Good

The Fall 2007 issue of Greater Good Magazine is out this week and it is devoted to the 21st Century Family. Articles tackle issues ranging from the binuclear family (after divorce), to the value of extended family, gay and lesbian parents effects on children, and how isolated American families have become.

Even though ESP is not specifically mentioned, the articles reveal many of the forces that have made this lifestyle an attractive option for so many. For instance, there seems to be a desire for more family time from all members of the family regardless of gender. In addition, Jeremy Adam Smith does a fine job describing the potential loneliness of parenting in this society and the need to reach out to others for connection.

I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to this magazine and wanted to pass it along for your review.

Thanks for the notice, Marc! We actually did list Equally Shared Parenting on the "Resources" page of the magazine--your site is a great resource for parents who are trying to figure out how to divide family labor equitably.
