Dads struggle with the parenting juggle too

And younger male execs are taking a stand

An article in the Australian Financial Review recently highlighted the fact that while most emphasis is put on the daily parenting vs work struggle of mums, dads find it just as hard.

The AFR reported that Max Schireson from US database company MongoDB was stepping down from his role as CEO for "family reasons". He will continue with the company in a more family-friendly vice-chairman position.

And when he said "for family reasons", that's just what he meant. In a blog he wrote:

"During that travel, I have missed a lot of family fun. Perhaps more importantly, I was not with my kids when our puppy was hit by a car or when my son had (minor and successful, and of course unexpected) emergency surgery".
