You are currently viewing S1:5 Redefining Gender Roles with Sara Haney

As the holiday season approaches, Sara Haney and I offer a few tips on how to redistribute the household workload. We offer ideas on how to take things off your plate, and delegate tasks to members of your family. 

We get very real and honest with gender roles in raising a family and running a household. “Parenting is relentless.” Sara admits, “Never before have I felt like I am suffocating like I have this year …” Join us in this authentic and very timely conversation.

Finally, as my gift to you this holiday season, I invite you to download my 5 Journaling Practices to Shift your Mindset. These are my favourite practices to help restore calm and focus when you are feeling overwhelmed.


The information guiding our conversation today is taken from Women in Canada: A Gender-based Statistical Report. Time use: Total work burden, unpaid work, and leisure
