Designing a Primary Intervention to Help Dual-Earner Couples Share Housework and Child Care
domestic labor, dual-earner couples, family life education, father involvement
Interventions to help dual-earner couples share domestic labor are rare. Related interventions to increase fathers' temporal involvement in child care have met with limited success. This article critiques the few scholarly reports of these interventions. In addition, a model of forces both constraining and driving equitable participation in domestic labor is presented. This model is recommended as a basis on which to design, implement, and evaluate a family life education program to assist dual-earner couples.
