Sharing Family Responsibilities: Finding peace and balance at home


Sharing family responsibilities, the chores, the childcare, the cooking can be a huge source of contention in the home.

While we don’t claim to be experts, my (kind and willing) husband and I are talking about how our expectations and roles have shifted through the years and how we manage responsibilities in our home.

Sharing family responsibilities: Finding peace and balance at home

Inside this episode you’ll find: 

  • What both my husband and my expectations were for how responsibilities would be shared in the home
  • How our pre-conceived ideas and gender expectations affected our beliefs about how responsibilities should be shared and how we’re changing those expectations with experience. 
  • The philosophy we use in our home to share roles in a way that both of us feel good about
  • The things we do as wives and mothers that turn our spouses off from wanting to help more
  • Why gratitude and thankfulness is important (even though the jobs belong to both spouses)
  • The mindset that helped me find more peace and acceptance in my cho
    sen role as a wife and a mother (that also helped me kick resentment). 

Meet my guest (and husband)

There was no one better to talk about sharing family responsibilities with than my husband. 

Kyle Spackman is a dentist in beautiful Cache Valley Utah, but he spends more than a little bit of his time thinking about, playing, and talking about board games. 

Together, we’ve shared 10 years of marriage, several homes in two states, and 3 children. 

You can find more from him on his board game website bitewing games.
