    1. I misunderstood what the book was about till a couple of chapters in, and then got and and annoyed They advocate splitting everything equally parenting, careers, housework, leisure time Sounds good, till you realise they really mean equal , and seem to think that taking turns to work 4 10 hour days is somehow better than both working at the same time, and sharing evenings and weekends together with the children In the book, both parents do an equal share of everything We re not interested in e [...]


    2. 2.5 starsMaybe I m lucky enough to already have a good relationship with my husband where we split things like chores and childcare roles pretty fairly as fairly as we can considering biological differences but I found a lot of the content in this book to be no brainers The book does make some assumptions based on traditional gender roles in families, but I can see how that may apply to other readers Overall, I didn t find this book very helpful or informative It did provide some options for cha [...]


    3. A phenomenal book that really articulates my philosophy on parenting The only critique I have is the fact that all the case studies downplay parents professional ambitions Most of the people they profile end up working from home, free lancing, or starting their own businesses It would be great to have tactics for dual working couples who have full time employment and don t want to or can t work for themselves.


    4. I sat up and took notice when the Vachons and other ESP couples were profiled in an article in the NY Times in 2008 I ve always wanted children but that desire has evolved into true ambivalence I want children but I don t want to succumb to the very gendered ways relationships that include children tend to change I am very committed to the principles of equality with my partner and balance in my own life and ESP speaks directly to that I am thrilled and excited to see that there are people very [...]


    5. The core concept of Equally Shared Parenting is pretty simple both parents should strive for equity in all aspects of family life after having a child This includes not only child rearing, but also housework, income, and life balance hobbies Equity means that both parents should reduce their work hours a bit, rather than having one parent stay at home and the other work a full time job In the area of child rearing, the Vachons argue for both parents taking turns doing each child related job othe [...]


    6. This book had a lot of interesting ideas that made sense I didn t agree with everything they put out there, but I like the idea of challenging our country s definition of the ideal worker 40 hours a week, regular business hours, coming in earlier and leaving later warrants awards and recognition, etc and of re evaluating what is important and what makes you happy Shouldn t leading a balanced life be valuable than being an ideal worker


    7. I randomly picked this book off the shelf at Powell s because the title caught my eye, and I m so glad I stumbled upon it I connected with much about the authors frustrations with traditional parenting roles, and the lack of examples for how to implement truly shared parenting The authors make no qualms about the fact that this is not an academic book based on in depth research or theoretical frameworks The book emerged from their own experiences and the organization that they founded to help co [...]


    8. I would recommend Halving It All over this book it was much helpful and detailed, and useful lessons I was lukewarm on this book Maybe it s just that my partner and I already follow this philosophy and have a pretty solid set of habits going, but I found it to be overly general and bland, and I didn t get much that was new I did like how they divided a family s life into four domains career, childcare, home, and self to explore how things are divided across these domains And they did give a lo [...]


    9. I was pretty familiar with most of the ideas in this book from other things I ve read and from the NYT magazine article featuring the authors, but I really enjoyed reading this I think it s well worth reading by any parents who are interested in keeping the various aspects of their life work, family, hobbies, and relationships balanced In fact, I wish I could make it required reading for all new parents.Some of the examples intentionally, I think play up gendered stereotypes, which is probably i [...]


    10. I just started this book and I am thankful that there are actually parents people out there that think like me I feel like I fall in between the stay at home mom types and career driven childless by choice women I know that this approach is not for everyone, nor is everything they are suggesting something that works for me That said, this book really breaks down gender roles which I am not sure is entirely possible but it is definitely food for thought Highly recommend for parents and anyone con [...]


    11. I m disappointed that most of the examples of equally shared parenting couples in the book are upper middle class or above doctors lawyers , or work in fields that are known for being flexible artists, designers.There is one example of a lower middle to middle class family where one parent does different work, depending on the season, but examples would have been appreciated, especially since the finance chapter doesn t delve into too many specifics.


    12. A very realistic view of what it means and what it takes to share the task of parenting together.Marc and Amy Vachon share their experiences as well as those of other ESP parents in a variety of situations in order to encourages this lifestyle as well as to caution those who are not yet prepared to handle all that it takes in order to truly adopt a fully equal partnership in all domains I would recommend this book to anyone looking to take a step into ESP living


    13. Great book Very good at getting into the practical and logistical aspects to this It is also good at framing , in the sense of making visible illogical biases such as when a man says, my wife can choose to work or not, I gave her the choice The too often invisible presumption in this that he is entitled to first access to resources, his job is important, he is entitled to paid compensation, she is not, he has no responsibility for unpaid work of meeting a child s needs.


    14. After hearing a few interviews with the couple, I was intrigued and wanted information The book addresses most of the issues I could think of and Some of the approaches and tips are useful for any couple, regardless of how equally shared things might be, and it definitely provides useful tips for any couples looking to move toward balance for both parties.


    15. LOVED this book think it should be required reading for all couples before they getting married Modern couples should no longer follow the antiquated gender roles of the wife being burdened by the household and child rearing responsibilities.



    16. This a great book especially when it comes to how mom and dads should divide their time with the kids I highly recommend it.
