Honey, We're Ahead of the Curve

Yesterday, my husband sent me a link to a article by Kate Lorenz, Editor, titled "Working dads want more family time." If I didn't already know that my husband, Scott, is the ultimate family guy, I'd think he was try to tell me something. The article highlights three key findings:

  • 37 percent of working dads would quit if spouse could support the family
  • Another 38 percent say they would take a pay cut to spend more time with kids
  • 36 percent say their job does not offer flexible arrangements like telecommuting

This data is so refreshing. In a country where we promote gender equality and the majority of two-parent homes have two working parents, it's encouraging to know that more than one-third of the dads surveyed prioritize home above work. What I've learned from my husband is that such sacrifice certainly comes with a price but the value of family time cannot ever be measured.
