Book - 2005
Rate this:
Despite the fact that most parents are employed, how work affects the lives and well-being of parents and their children remains relatively unexplored. Drawing on a recent study of 500 dual-career families in 8 communities across the U.S., this book focuses on how families achieve or fail to attain work-life balance. With its rich diversity of data, findings, and commentary from an interdisciplinary group of scholars, the book provides a valuable resource for academics, policy makers, and working parents.
