Thanks to the Families and Work Institute, we’ve added a new segment to the Fem2.0 Wake Up! blog radio series, Work/Life and Kids: What Do Kids Really Think About Their Working Parents?
On Wednesday, February 10, 1 PM EST, join us here, as Ellen Galinsky, president of Families and Work Institute and author of Ask the Children and Mind in the Making, moderates a discussion with Lisa Belkin, New York Times writer and author of the Motherlode blog on nytimes.com, and clinical psychologist Joshua Coleman, author of The Marriage Makeover and The Lazy Husband, and co-chair of the Council on Contemporary Families.
When both mom and dad work, it can complicate parenting and marriage. We will talk about the impact of social pressures and media coverage on working couples and their children, what the research tells us, and what we can do to make things better for both kids and their working parents.
