Deconstructing Family Time: From Ideology to Lived Experience.
Daly, Kerry J.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n2 p283-94 May 2001
Interviews were conducted with dual earner and single parent families and observations were made of four- and five-year-old children in daycare to consider the meaning of family time in experience. Although families held the expectation of a positive experience of togetherness, many negative emotions occurred suggesting that a structural contradiction exists between the ideals and experience of family time.
