Equally Shared Parenting. . .

This weeks jumping monkeys episode featuredEqually Shared Parenting. I am a big proponent of this.

The idea is that both parents need to help out with. . .
  • Breadwinning
  • Childcare
  • Housework
  • and Recreation

I just need to get my wife more involved in the housework part, but over all I think we do OK. I suppose I have a more flexible work schedule which was one of their points (two people working 30 hours a week make more than one breadwinner working 40). Almost all our recreation is done together.

Anyway, there are some good tips in the How It Works section of this site for how to get both parents completely involved in having kids.
