There is perhaps no greater controversy resulting from womens'
increasing autonomy than the debate over the effects of a mother's
employment on family life and children's well-being. This important
volume starts with a thorough review of previous research on this
topic and then reports the results of a study designed to answer
the key questions that emerge. The study focuses on 448 families
with an elementary school child, living in an industrialized city
in the Midwest. They include both one-parent and two-parent
families, African Americans and Whites, and a broad range of
economic circumstances. Extensive data have been obtained from
mothers, fathers, children, teachers, classroom peers, and school
records. The analysis reported reveals how the mother's employment
status affects the father's role, the mother's sense of well-being,
and child rearing patterns and how these, in turn, affect the
child. The book provides an intimate picture of urban life and how
families cope with mothers' employment.
