Parenting in the News...again

Over at the Mama, PhD blog at IHE today I'm talking about Lisa Belkin's shared parenting piece in the NY Times magazine, as well as two pieces more specifically focused on academic women and academic parenting. Let me know what you think!

I sighed when I found your blog, recommended by my 5-year old son's teacher.(thank you, Melissa, for your balance and inspiration) I know much is written about the academy, and the institutional conflicts for academic moms. I am torn more by the deeper personal conflicts of time, energy and focus. Work and parenting draw on such different parts of me: I currently feel like a two- or three-headed hydra.
