Commonsense ESP

If we had a nickel for every time someone said that ESP was impractical, we'd be...well...a few dollars richer at least. It's a common complaint, this idea that ESP is not a commonsense family lifestyle.  And for many couples, were they forced to implement it today, this is a valid criticism. Imagine asking a typical breadwinner father to go in late to work in order to drop off his kids at preschool 50% of the time, while his stay-at-home wife puttered about in her PJs...exactly how long would this make sense to either of them? 

But we're not talking about forcing anyone to do anything. Rather the opposite, in fact - we're asking people to wake up to their original dreams for themselves and for each other as a couple. And then to shepherd their lives so that their dreams make complete sense.

This 'practical ESP' is the topic of our new guest blog on PBS Parents' Experts Q&A column. We're the guests there for the rest of October, and warmly invite you to click over to read our post and chime in on the discussion in the comments.

As we say at the end of the post, we would love to hear your stories of crazy-wonderful equally shared parenting, or your reservations about the craziness. What works? What is absolutely nuts?
