Working Fathers

GUESTS: James Levine Director of the Fatherhood Project at the Families and Work Institute in New York City Balancing work and family have traditionally been seen as women's problems, but more and more men want the extra time to spend with their families. Creating a father-friendly workplace is a challenge that is being met by a growing number of businesses. Supporters of programs that give dads time away from the office think we have a workforce full of men who are too tense - allowing them more time at home will benefit the quality of their job performances. Join host Melinda Penkava for a discussion about fathers juggling their professional and personal lives ...on the next Talk of the Nation from NPR News.
