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.

Be Part of ESP History!

If you are part of a couple with kids in which:
  • You both work at least 20 hours per week for pay
  • You share the load of household chores and parenting tasks
  • You each could participate in a 15-minute phone interview about how you balance housework and childcare
...our mentor, Francine Deutsch, Professor of Psychology at Mount Holyoke College, wants you!

Dr. Deutsch is the pre-eminent ESP academic researcher, and author of Halving It All: How Equally Shared Parenting Works.  We've known her since close to the beginning of our ESP lives, and her encouragement has been like gold to us.

If you are interested, we would highly encourage you to be part of this research by sending an email to her research assistant, Phuong Ta, at ta20p@mtholyoke.edu or by calling 413-363-6432.  Please be assured that all the information from this study will be treated as strictly confidential, and your name will be kept separate from your data. 

Come on...it'll be fun!

Addendum from 3/26/10:  Recruitment for this study is now complete.

The goal is to determine how couples meeting this description figure out how to share the chores, and what motivates them to do so...I think. But I haven't read the official study description, so this would be a great first question to ask if you call.
