Maternal Employment and Selected Behaviors and Attitudes of Preadolescents and Adolescents.
Dellas, Marie; And Others
Investigation of the relationship between maternal employment and behaviors and attitudes (emcompassing parental relationships; personal problems, educational/career aspirations; future life; sex role ideology) of preadolescents and adolescents indicated significant differences only for preadolescents regarding sex role ideology. Working mother children more frequently favored the working mother role. Also, working mother daughters, compared with sons, more frequently supported this notion, as did working mother children of managerial and working class, but not professional class, families. Results suggest full-time maternal employment has few effects on behaviors and attitudes of school-age children from intact families, these effects diminishing along the developmental continuum. There is no substantial evidence indicating that maternal employment has a detrimental effect or even a consistently differentiating effect on behavior and attitudes of children. (Author)
