Low-Income Mothers' Nighttime and Weekend Work: Daily Associations with Child Behavior, Mother-Child Interactions, and Mood
Gassman-Pines, Anna
Family Relations, v60 n1 p15-29 Feb 2011
This study investigated low-income mothers' daily nighttime and weekend work and family outcomes. Sixty-one mothers of preschool-aged children reported daily on work hours, mood, mother-child interaction, and child behavior for two weeks (N = 724 person-days). Although nighttime and weekend work are both nonstandard schedules, results showed adverse associations of working nighttime hours on family outcomes--more negative mood and mother-child interactions; less positive child behavior--but no relationship between weekend work and family outcomes. (Contains 3 tables.)
