Equally Shared Parenting - Half the Work ... All the Fun

 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.

Equally Shared Parenting - The Book!

Our aim with ESP.com has always been to bring the possibility of balanced lives and gender equality to all parents. Especially those who might be interested in creating it for themselves. To this end, we've been working to outline the benefits, challenges and practical decisions of this family model throughout this website.

Now we have a second way to work toward this goal. We are proud to announce that we will be writing a book on equally shared parenting over the next year, to be published by Perigee/Penguin Books in 2010. Our plan is share all that we've learned - from the many couples we've met who inspire us (that's you), from our own successes and mistakes, and from experts in gender-equality - so that we end up with something truly useful to a would-be ESP parent.

We are excited at the possibility of expanding the message of ESP through a book. But we can't do it without you. Now is the time to write to either of us if you'd be interested in helping us make this book the best possible - through your ESP stories and thoughts. If you're an ESP parent, or someone who has given equal sharing a lot of thought even if you aren't currently doing it, we would love to hear from you! Drop us a line in the comments or, better yet, by writing to either of us at info@equallysharedparenting.com.

To start, if you had one thing you'd like to tell the world about ESP, what would it be?

Hey Amy and Marc, congrats on your book deal! Mojo Mom is coming out in spring 2009 from Gotham Books, also a division of Penguin, so we'll be published by the same team. I am thinking of you and ESP as I put the final touches on the new edition!

Lisa and Amy/Mojomom,
Thanks! We're pretty excited - and nervous for the undertaking. It will be a big challenge to keep the balance we cherish and make room for writing this book.

Can't wait to read the new Mojo Mom!

wonderful news! one thing about ESP - it's really not that difficult to do and the benefits for your family far outweigh any sacrifices that are made. Ultimately ESP is a win-win for all involved. (sorry that might be two or more things...
