Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088099245X, Paperback)

Conflicts arise daily among American families over how to balance the demands of work and family. At risk is nothing less than the economic security of the family and the bonds between parents and children that are so important and rewarding. The issues fueling the work/family struggle attract researchers interested not only in spotting and tracking trends that highlight the difficulties families face, but in finding policy solutions to those difficulties that are effective and economically sound.

Jean Kimmel and Emily P. Hoffman present a set of topical, non-technical papers authored by nationally known experts in this field. Using an economic perspective, they confront work/family issues including child care (potentially the biggest obstacle to parents successfully integrating work and family priorities), how parents balance time between work and family obligations, links between women's childbearing and their economic outcomes, the success of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the relationship between family structure and labor market outcomes. They also argue for specific policies designed to alleviate the stresses related to these issues
