Before it was making lunches, paying bills, remembering birthdays; now there's the around-the-clock home schooling and caregiving while working remotely during a global pandemic. Are you fed up with being the 'she-fault' parent responsible for the bulk of this unpaid, invisible and time-consuming work?
Organisational specialist Eve Rodsky realised that simply identifying the issue of unequal labour on the home front wasn't enough - she needed a solution to this universal problem. Fair Play is the result: a time- and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to share the domestic and emotional load at home. Drawing on 500 interviews with men and women, Eve has figured out what the invisible work in a family actually is and shows you how to get it all done efficiently. With its fun, game-like format, four easy-to-follow rules and 100 household tasks for you to share, Fair Play will help you prioritise what's important to your family and help you work out who should take the lead on everything from the laundry to homework to dinner.
With your home life re-balanced and your relationship reignited, you'll have time to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting.
Eve Rodsky received her B.A. in economics and anthropology from the University of Michigan, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. After working in foundation management at J.P. Morgan, she founded the
Philanthropy Advisory Group to advise families and charitable foundations on best practices for their work. She created the Fair Play system in response to her own need to juggle work and family life when she realized that she could apply her expertise in family mediation, strategy, and organizational management to a problem closer to home. Over the last decade, she has tested Fair Play with more than 500 families all around the US and the world. Rodsky was born and raised by a single mum in New York City and now lives in Los
Angeles with her husband and their three children. Fair Play is her first book.
