After giving her sons breakfast, Karin Bejerano dashes off to work as a high school dance instructor. Her husband, Andres, moves fully into dad mode, adjusting the boys’ shirt buttons, sticking lunches into backpacks, driving them to school and delivering their sports bags to their grandparents’ home for use later in the day.

The tag team system works for the Bejeranos as they ready for another school year and divide responsibilities that include supervising homework and shuttling Bryson, 13, and Trystan, 8, to extracurricular activities such as football and music lessons.

Today, more than 60 percent of two-parent households with children under age 18 have two working parents, according to Pew Research Center’s 2013 Modern Parenthood Study. The new division of labor has dads just as stressed about juggling work and family life as moms.
