What is The Fair Play Method?
The Fair Play Method is an approach to our parenting, partnering, and professional lives that helps couples thoughtfully rebalance the invisible labor in the home with the goal of reducing chaos, strengthening connection, and creating space for individual pursuits. Developed by Eve Rodsky, it’s a system based on the fundamental idea that everyone’s time is valuable, and that measuring time in minutes, not dollars, can elevate the way families function.
With four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household cards, and a series of conversation starters for you and your partner, Fair Play helps you prioritize what’s important to your family and who should take the lead on every chore, from laundry to homework to dinner.
Goodbye to the days of the She-Fault parent. Hello gender equity!

The Home is The Most Important Organization
Every healthy organization has explicitly defined expectations, operates with fairness and transparency, and provides accountability and trust where each person understand their role—and others’—with clarity.
By establishing this framework in our homes, and dividing the invisible labor within the home equitably (not equally), we give partners an opportunity to build a stronger, healthier, more fun, and more respectful relationship built to last.
