Finding Balance in the Family Workload

The division of labor between both parents doesn’t always appear equal. Though, as Parenting Program’s Lori Warner, Ph.D., discovered, “The things I do are recurring. They’re everyday, like laundry. But my husband does the bigger projects that don’t happen all the time. We’re very traditional with how we broke down our responsibilities, and we’re comfortable with that.” This doesn’t work for every family, so you have to determine what works best for you.

Lori and others share their experiences with balancing the family workload. Plus, read Lori’s tips on what to do if you feel like there’s an imbalance at your house in the Equal Parenting article on Metro Parent.

    Lori, another great article! Love your term the “imperfect balance.” Well stated…it makes the idea of balance attainable. Thank you!
