i never understood what equally shared parenting meant when brought to debate, it sounds like a lot of micro managing adn DH adn i don't live that way, we don't parent that way.

I am not really sure why everybody is hating on this website. They are not saying that this parenting style is better than other parenting style - they are just saying it is an option and if you choose this option here are some tips and challenges.

From the website "We just happen to think we (and many other couples) practice a tragically overlooked parenting option that everyone should know about, and IF it is right for you, we’d love to help you achieve it."

This is the parenting style my husband and I use. I checked out some of the web site. We have worked out most of our issues so I did not find it very helpful but I also did not think it was totally off base.

It would be as if there was a web site that gave advice to SAH moms and gave tips and tricks for that parenting style. There are many families that can't or don't use that parenting style but I would not dislike the website because it is not the option I chose.

I don't think anyone is "hating" on the website.

Just like being a SAH mom would not work for my family I guess I would not go so far as saying it is a very in effective method of parenting for the majority of couples out there.

I mean I really and sincerely do not understand the SAH method of parenting - but I guess you do so you do it.

I also think it take many types of poeple to raise many types of people to have a complete world.

but equally shared parenting is more than just a WOH/SAH issue.

Just to clarify - I never have been, nor do I ever see myself being, a SAHP.

My written communication skills need work - I mean if "you" - not you specifically.
