Trait Judgments of Stay-at-Home and Employed Parents: A Function of Social Role and/or Shifting Standards?
Bridges, Judith S.; Etaugh, Claire; Barnes-Farrell, Janet
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v26 n2 p140-150 Jun 2002
Primarily middle class, white college students read brief descriptions of stay-at-home or employed mothers or fathers, estimated how often they performed several parenting behaviors, and rated them on communion and parenting effectiveness. Respondents estimated more parenting behaviors for mothers than fathers in both roles, gave stay-at-home mothers and fathers similar trait ratings, and viewed employed mothers as lower in communion and parenting effectiveness than fathers.
