Adventures in Equal Parenting

Adventures in Equal Parenting

Video portrait of New York couple who equally share breadwinning and parenting responsibilities.

Addressing the hurdles of raising children in the 21st century, New York Times videographers offer this profile of a New York couple who employ what they call ESP (no, they don’t read each other’s thoughts) – Equally Shared Parenting. Working as “equal bread winners” professionally, they also look to split parental responsibilities straight down the middle – from laundry to story time – in hopes of creating “a sense of stability and calmness” for their two young children. Accompanied by a print magazine story and lively blog.
