Adolescents' Chores: The Differences between Dual- and Single-Earner Families.
Benin, Mary Holland; Edwards, Debra A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n2 p361-73 May 1990
Investigated effects of family employment structure on adolescents' (N=176) participation in family chores. Results indicated that dual-earner families were more sexist than traditional families with respect to time in chores demanded of sons and daughters. Although traditional families required equal amounts of chore time from sons and daughters, they assigned them along sex-stereotyped divisions of labor. (Author/TE)
