For more than 30 years, the Balswicks have known the unique stresses and joys of a dual-earner marriage. They learned, sometimes the hard way, how to structure their lives so they weren't overpowered by the demands of family and work. Here they demonstrate that you can have quality family life and still fulfil job responsibilities. Their advice will show you how to:
Avoid circuit overload
Gain new marital intimacy
Provide the best care for your children
Survive the "second shift"
Accept a role-sharing model for marriage
The Balswicks explain how you can have a balanced partnership with your spouse and strong bonds with your children. They write, "It's not a matter of either spouse quitting their job, but a matter of working together to form a safe 'electrical' system that keeps family members in touch with each other."
