Biz and Theresa wonder how we find time to discuss family business with our partners, or -- shock of all shocks -- simply talk and connect with our partners?! How is it possible two people can live in the same house and not find time to talk? Oh, that’s right. We have kids. Plus, Biz gets comfortable with being a “plain old mom” and Theresa takes a chance and talks with the parents of Simon's playground "bully." And, we talk about why so few men take paternity leave in America with our guest Shaun Wiley, Professor of Social Psychology at The College of New Jersey.
A link to Shaun's study will be added whenever it becomes available:
The Daddy Dilemma: Femininity and Poor Worker Stigmas Lower Men’s Intentions to take Paternity Leave in the US, by Joseph Firnhaber, Jason J. Dahling, Shaun Wiley, and Julie Hughes
