Welcome NY Times Readers and Today Show Viewers!

Today is an historic day for equally shared parenting. As we hinted in our previous post, big media exposure for ESP was just around the corner - and today is the day! The cover story to this Sunday's New York Times Magazine (now available online) is about ESP - as written by Lisa Belkin. Included in online version of the article is a video of a day in the life of...us! We've had the pleasure of working with Lisa for many months as she prepared this article. Having such a world-wide forum to shout "equally shared parenting is wholly possible" is a dream come true for us.

We hope today is the beginning of a much more global discussion about ESP - benefits, challenges, questions, ideas - than has ever before happened. We're thrilled to be in the thick of the action, and invite you to join in. Comments are welcome here on this website, as well as at the NY Times Magazine site. Lisa Belkin is also launching a brand new NY Times blog called (be still our hearts!) Equal Parenting, and we couldn't be more thrilled.

If you're new to
www.equallysharedparenting.com, please accept our warm welcome and have a look around. We have primer essays on various ESP topics in our How It Works section, stories from other ESP couples in our Real Life Stories section (check back for more stories soon), and tons of links and books in our Resources section.

And if you're up extremely early reading this blog post, tune in to the Today Show this morning (Thursday)! Sometime between 8:00am and 8:30am EST, Lisa Belkin will be on the show discussing her article, complete with clips from a day in the life of Marc, me and our kids.

Note: The Today Show video is now online at http://today.msnbc.msn.com/. Enjoy!

Phew - what a week this will be! Glad to have you along for the journey....

What a great article and video. So many of us find ourselves in this uncharted territory and perhaps not going about it as well as you two are. I'm grateful to you all for sharing your story and providing additional resources.

Hi Marc and Amy, congrats on uncorking a whole new genre for the press! I just posted a comment on the NYTMag site, re: the Shaping Youth article I wrote last Father's Day about "New Media, New Men" and dedicated dads out to be cyclebreakers to strive for more gender equity and family balance in the name of cultural attitude shifts! (I interviewed Joe Kelly from D&D)


Maybe we should do a follow up w/you two on Shaping Youth and tackle the "team approach to kids' media/marketing exposure" (parameters, shared ideals, etc) to point more folks towards the NYTMag piece?!

Kudos all around, Amy J.
