Book Review: Fair Play

We all know that running a household and parenting kids requires endless emotional, mental, and physical effort! Unfortunately, without an explicit negotiation of how the workload should be split, research shows that women still do the bulk of childcare and domestic work, even in two-earner families in which both parents work full-time! ๐Ÿงน๐Ÿงฝ ๐Ÿผ ๐ŸŽ’

For moms in this community, of course, there's the added burden of living with a chronic illness. Taking care of your own health may require dozens of appointments, trips to the pharmacy, long phone calls arguing with your insurance company or copay assistance program, physical or occupational therapy, and more - not to mention a very legitimate need for down time to rest and care for yourself!


Based on copious research, interviews, and testing, Rodsky has developed a system that offers couples a way to divide up all domestic responsibilities - or "cards" - and, most importantly, to divide them FAIRLY. Rodsky encourages each mom to grab on to this mantra and repeat it again, and again, and again: "I do not have to do it all." Fair Play will help you learn how to make this mantra a reality within your own home.
