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.

Join ESP on Facebook

Following in the footsteps of many of our fellow parenting authors and bloggers, we have set up a Facebook site for Equally Shared Parenting. Although we'll continue to consider our blog to be the main way we can dissect and discuss issues of gender equality and balanced lives, we find that there are many times we want to quickly mention an interesting piece of news that we're not quite ready to turn into a full blog post. Our Facebook page should work nicely for this.

Plus we'll be able to post our book publication news there without overwhelming the blog with this one (albeit very exciting) topic.

So, please consider this your very heartfelt invitation to become a 'fan' of the new ESP Facebook page. Click on the Facebook page badge on the lefthand side of this page to check it out in its newborn state, and then click on the 'Become a Fan' button to receive our updates to your own Facebook page.

And we hope you'll send us any suggestions you have for spiffing up the page. We're all ears!

After understanding and studying, different philosophies, schools of thought, isms, religion, history, science and present world around, I am compelled to put forward two points which I feel are most important for our survival, for leading better and happy life.
They are: (1) Helping others and (2) Healing the earth.
Helping others:
All the men and women are equal. The difference is only in manifestation. Irrespective of their caste, religion, region, class, color, race and country all human beings are equal. One should help others and serve them as if they are serving themselves or their own family. All major religions and philosophies teach this.
You receive a lot of benefits spiritual, mental and even material when you treat others equal to you and help them. Real happiness lies in helping others. All great philosophers and great men said that all are equal and help those who are in need. There is a deep meaning in that. One way of looking at is, helping others is you helping yourself. Other way of looking at it is when people help each other, unity among those people increases. In history we can observe that united societies progressed more and prosperity showered on them. When society grows an individual also benefits. So, also benefits by helping others.
Healing the earth:
We are enjoying benefits the earth provides us. While we utilize the resources available from earth, at the same time we are damaging the earth. So, it’s our responsibility to balance development, scientific advancement and protection of earth. All three things are important, but we need to balance and re-think strategy at regular times and then move ahead. We need to heal earth by practicing more environmental friendly practices like energy efficient cars, less pollution, minimizing the utilization of resources, etc. We should plant more trees and protect natural eco systems. We when perform these activities, we give a better place to live for our future generations. In last 100 years some places around the world have become uninhabitable. We should work towards stopping this deteriorating situation. This world is like a beautiful garden and life a gift. If we damage this garden, the birth will be like a punishment. To enjoy the fruits of this garden and to rest in its shadow we need to take responsibility to water the garden. We need to heal the earth.

To live a happy and beautiful life it is essential to help others and to heal the earth. These are two things if you believe and practice it well make your life a very fulfilling. Try it. It works. Liked it, please spread the message.
