Episode Summary: 

Balance is one of those tricky topics for working parents.  Most working parents find it difficult to have a balanced life.  Other working parents do feel balance from time to time, but then they have periods of time when all hell breaks loose and they have to fight to get back into balance.  And then there’s a whole other group of people who just don’t believe it exists at all.  So I wanted to talk to an expert about this topic of balance in general, and whether it’s something that working parents should strive for, or if it’s an impossible ideal.
