Working Mothers of Children with Chronic Illness: Narratives of Working and Caring
Vickers, Margaret; Parris, Melissa; Bailey, Jeff
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v29 n1 p39-44 Mar 2004
This paper reports the initial findings of an exploratory, qualitative study of the life and work of people who are working full-time and also caring for a child with chronic illness. The demands of such a lifestyle are significant. Respondents--all women--often reported "doing-it-all" while constantly being frustrated and challenged in their mothering role.
