We really want dads' input to make sure their views aren't under-represented in the debate about how to make juggling work and caring for children better for both parents. So please can you get your partner to fill in the survey too. They'll also be entered into the prize draw (and so can take you off for a luxury weekend if they win). Thanks very much.

Begrudgingly done by DH

I take it he doesn't have to sign up to MN or anything in order to do it? (I need MN to be a DH free zone grin)

Thank you, that's great. No, dads don't have to sign up to MN, just needs the survey page.

Mine did it last night but needed to ask me the ages of our children hmm

I hope he was joking!!grin

I wasn't sure if you could answer it and choose not to answer certain questions, but I've done it and it seems you can.

....tried to fill this in.

However it is not, it would seem, for lone parents.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 08-Aug-08 17:22:40

Sorry, no this particular bit of the research doesn't apply to lone parents but we do have a lone parents thread - please do post you thoughts/comments there if you get a moment as we could do with some more input.
Many thanks.

twoGsinBuggerOff Fri 08-Aug-08 19:47:52

SammyK Sat 09-Aug-08 09:52:05

I just got DP to do it, but I had to do it for him. hmm

I would have thought, frankly, that it is worth noting that not that many men have filled it in.

WaynettaSlob Sat 09-Aug-08 11:01:19

Wayne filled it in.....would be very interested to compare his answers with mine, particularly in terms of how much we share things at home!!! grin

Mr Russel has done his bit.

Some feedback from DH - some questions were a bit difficult to answer as I am on (paid) maternity leave at the mo.

itsMYmummy Sat 09-Aug-08 20:49:12

DH completed it- took it all V seriously and insisted on pindrop silence.

Good job I can multitask, what with two dc's and MN i'd get nothing done grin
