Just a quick post to say we're featured in a new article on BabyZone.com today. It's a fairly general article about how couples can more equitably share housework and childraising activities. I like how the author describes the relative ease of sharing the household cleaning and typical chores, but that 'extracurriculars' like party planning and shopping for gifts are harder to share.
Tips are provided, partly from us and also from Jessica DeGroot of the ThirdPath Institute. I agree with all of them except this one: "Many women think that being CEO of the home gives them the right to micromanage their husbands. Instead, think about the good bosses you've had - usually the best ones are those who tell you what needs to be done, but let you figure out how to do it." I'd go much further than this if you want ESP - all the way to asking women to give up being the CEO of the home altogether. No managing at all - just teaming up with him to get the job done and enjoying it along the way.
Thanks, Jeannie Brown of BabyZone, for a nice primer on getting to equality!
