Childcare Task Division and Shared Parenting Attitudes in Dual-Earner Families with Young Children.
Ehrenberg, Marion F.; Gearing-Small, Margaret; Hunter, Michael A.; Small, Brent J.
Family Relations, v50 n2 p143-53 Apr 2001
Evaluates shared parenting (SP), marital satisfaction, and division of child-care tasks in dual-earner families (N=116). Results show that psychological and relational SP dimensions predicted marital satisfaction, parental competence, and closeness to their children, but division of child-care tasks did not. Findings are interpreted to highlight how family practitioners may educate and support this population. (MKA)
