Play

We all know that most of us are overwhelmed.  The question is- what do we do about it?  Like most things- it begins with awareness.  We get into a discussion based on a book by Brigid Schulte titled Overwhelmed- Work, Love, & Play When No One Has The Time.  We play some clips from an amazing interview she did with NPR’s Terry Gross.  Some of the highlights include:

  • The idea of “contaminated time”
  • Is there a different set of expectations between men and women when it comes to parenting?
  • We claim to be a culture of family values- Is this in alignment with the behaviors and policies we currently have?
  • Balancing the responsibilities of parenting between mom and dad
  • The dangers of being “fun dad”
  • The biology that men have in regards to being a nurturer.
