This is the Life
That's the sweet title of the current article in Jugglezine (an e-zine devoted to work/life balance, sponsored by Herman Miller) about equally shared parenting. I was interviewed for this article several weeks ago, and looked forward to seeing it on the screen. Now that it has been published, I couldn't be more happy with the result.
Writer (and Jugglezine editor) Christine Maclean did a wonderful job of catching some of the keys to ESP, such as the concept that ESP couples build balance into their schedules rather than try to achieve it from quick-fix band-aids like vowing to leave work each day at 6:30. Or the fact that ESP takes a certain amount of courage, inner strength, resourcefulness and chutzpah when confronted with all the cultural forces pulling us into traditional roles. Or how balance comes from partnership - from leaning on your spouse to do his/her share, and supporting your partner in creating his/her own balanced life.
By the way, if you like reading soulful and meaty articles about work/life balance, consider subscribing to Jugglezine (it's free). Despite the fact that it is sponsored by an office furniture maker, it is commercial free and top notch - some of the best stuff on the topic I've encountered.
