Here is a potential resource for faculty.  Equally Shared Parenting (ESP):  new strategies for achieving work-life balance with children.  Marc and Amy Vachon offer a parenting model on their website (and book) as an option for those dual career couples with children.  The website outlines benefits, challenges, tips, and resources.

The Vachons define ESP as, “The purposeful practice of two parents sharing equally in the domains of child raising, housework, breadwinning, and time for self.”
