Gender Differences in Parental Strain: Parental Role or Gender Role?
Scott, Jacqueline; Alwin, Duane F.
Journal of Family Issues, v10 n4 p482-503 Dec 1989
Examined gender differences in strains associated with parenting. Findings from 1,040 parents revealed that women experienced more parental role strain that men; however, very little of the sex difference seemed to be a result of differential role experiences. Suggests that gender difference in parental role strain may be better explained by gender differences in relationship orientation. (NB)
