Quick Poll for Orthodox Mothers

I’m working on a presentation about the specific pressures put on Orthodox Moms, and I’d love some help understanding what those are exactly. Discussions about gender roles and the distribution of parenting labor abound in our society — but I’m curious about how these things work in Orthodox homes. Is it any different from anywhere else? What is our Orthodox parenting culture looking like as we finish up this decade?

Fathers are welcome to answer about the dynamic in their household — just let me know that you’re a dad, chiming in about how things work in your home.

I would appreciate your responses to a few questions. Thanks in advance for letting me mine your thoughts for my presentation! When I finish, I’ll post it here.
