Lifehacks for Dads Who Do Fifty Percent: A Meet Up

Saturday, March 12
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 208
110 E 2nd St


Traditional family roles have evolved. In 2014, 60% of married-couple families with children are supported by both parents working. More often than not the arrangement at home is that each parent is in charge of doing 50% of the work. There’s no arguing that raising children is really difficult. Especially difficult for Moms. But often the troubles that modern Dads face don’t get enough attention. There's not a readily available community of “Dads that do 50%” to call on for advice and support. At this meet up, we “Dads that Do 50%” shall rally and share the lifehacks we’ve each come up with to come off like rockstar husbands/fathers/employees (while secretly just barely holding it together)
