Chat with the Vachons on equal parenting
Watertown couple Amy and Marc Vachon willingly became poster people for equal parenting in 2006, when they started blogging about it on their website; their public role was cemented in 2008 by a New York Times Magazine cover story. The Vachons chat Monday, May 9 at noon, to discuss equally splitting parenting duties.
