HuffPost Live: Men Also Want it All

HuffPost Live

I was a guest on a HuffPost Live segment titled, “Men Also Want it All.”

There’s plenty of talk about women opting out, leaning in, and struggling to strike the right balance between their careers and family life. But what about the men? How do men balance their career ambitions with their desire to be good fathers?

I was joined by a panel of fathers who discussed work/life balance and the struggles of managing a career vs being involved in daily family life.

Late in the conversation, the host asked about Miley Cyrus’ performance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Although I was unprepared to speak on this topic, I talked about how I used the controversy to have a deeper conversation with my daughter about society’s perception of women.

Stay Strong,
