Guests: Darcy Lockman, Claire Kamp Dush If you are living with a significant other, who does the laundry? Who cooks dinner? Who drives the kids to soccer practice? Who cuts the grass? Dividing up the chores equally can be key to a healthy relationship. But, despite the fight for gender equality, studies have shown that women are still doing the bulk of the household duties including childcare, even when they are working outside the home. In same-sex couples, chores are divvied up more equitably. This hour, we look at the division of household labor, the strain unequal duties can put on relationships, and how to divide housework fairly. Our guests are CLAIRE KAMP DUSH, a professor at Ohio State University and DARCY LOCKMAN, a clinical psychologist and the author of All the Rage: Mothers, Fathers and the Myth of Equal Partnership.
Today we connect with Darcy Lockman, clinical psychologist and author of All The Rage, the a book that explores how egalitarian relationships become traditional ones when children are introduced to the household. We loved connecting with Darcy about the motherload, the myth of maternal instinct, why we struggle with relationship expectations, the complications of socialization vs biology, and how we can best raise children of any gender to be both communal helpers and independent doers.

Biz and Theresa explore the limits of our power as parents. Kids have pretty big ideas about what we can do and it's a life lesson learned that we can’t take them to Ancient Egypt to dine with cats. But what about the more realistic needs and wishes we can’t meet, like that must have outfit, guitar lessons, or that birthday gift they really want? How does all this crushing disappointment make us feel? Hint: Not the best. Plus, nature comes to Biz, Theresa has too much on her brain and we talk to clinical psychologist Darcy Lockman about the Myth of Equal Partnership. It's a doozy of a show.
