 Subscribe in a reader

Here's where we keep you updated on news about parenting as it relates to division of responsibilities, career versus home decisions, work/life balance, and legislative and grass-roots movements toward equality or better choices for families. We'll also throw in our opinions of life as equal parents in a nonequal world, regardless of what's in the news.

Our First Census?

So it's not hard science, but an ABC News poll discussed in an article of the 'is Sarah Palin a fit parent' genre revealed the breakdown of childraising responsibilities by gender as: 85% mothers as primary parent, 11% equally shared parenting, and 2% fathers as primary parent. Wow - ESP is getting counted now! I'm happy to see it recognized right up there with the rest of the big parenting-lifestyle players, and in a small but hearty 11% at that.

Of course this is only equal sharing of the childraising domain of ESP, so I can assume that the numbers of couples who also equilibrate their breadwinning, housework and recreation time is considerably smaller. Still, I'm pleased.

We'll be on the lookout for ESP census numbers in the future, and expecting them to grow!
