Abstract

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.
