Supporting Women - Mental Load, Mental Health and Respect.

On International Women’s Day it’s worth reflecting why your work life balance is so important - but you have to understand how you can use it to support your partner.

A new generation of dads want much more involvement in their children’s lives and they don't just want to be ‘weekend parents’.

They expect equality at home and at work.

They want to be there for the moments that matter.

⭐ They want to spend more time with their families even if means sacrificing promotion and financial rewards.

BUT it’s never just about dads.

Yes, it’s true, my business is built around supporting dads,

Improving work life balance for dads is never just about helping blokes to spend more time with their children, it’s about relationships and gender equality and how work life balance for dads can unlock benefits for the whole family.

So on International Women’s Day, I’ve selected 3 blog posts that reflect a number of themes that I believe are vital for men to understand if they are genuinely serious about supporting their partners in meaningful ways.

1) “Mental Load”, what it is and why it occurs.

2) The mental health cost of maternity leave.

3) Respecting your partner’s career

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
