Caruso, Grace-Ann L.
Journal of Family Issues, v13 n3 p297-311 Sep 1992
Surveyed 476 parents of 2 year olds regarding maternal employment. Sixty percent of mothers were employed; 40 percent of children received nonparental care; 20 percent of parents worked alternate shifts to share parenting. Patterns suggest many children of employed mothers are cared for by family and more hours mothers are employed, increases likelihood children receive nonfamilial care. (Author/NB)
