Alleger, Lindsay; Brogan, Maureen; Fronheiser, April; Hess, Auden; Kosakowski, Jill; Sosnowski, Jane; Sternberg, Tamar; Chambliss, Catherine
Differences in attitudes about maternal employment during infancy versus childhood were assessed by measuring the perceptions of college students grouped according to their mothers employment status during different periods of their childrens development. Attitudes about both costs and benefits associated with maternal employment were examined separately. Consistent with earlier studies, results revealed that a history of maternal part-time employment was associated with students perceiving maternal employment as entailing fewer costs and greater benefits to children than either full-time employment or non-employment.
