Goldsteen, Karen; Ross, Catherine E.
Journal of Family Issues, v10 n4 p504-26 Dec 1989
Examined role strain of mothers with children at home. Findings from 549 mothers suggest that perceived burden of raising children is unevenly distributed. Results concerning life cycle imply that mothers of different ages will be differentially distressed by children. Perceived burden was affected by child's age, number of children, mother's age, mother's employment status, and the social context. (NB)
