Working with Working Families. ERIC Digest.
This ERIC Digest offers tips for understanding the needs, concerns, and feelings of employed parents, and discusses ways child caregivers can involve working parents in their children's lives while the children are enrolled in child care facilities. Competition with the caregiver, guilt over leaving children in the care of others, and little time for activities are characteristics of employed parents that may affect their relationship with caregivers. That relationship can be facilitated by flexible scheduling, parent visits, parent education, formal and informal communication, and informal gatherings. (RH)
