The last several decades have witnessed major changes in gender roles and family patterns, as well as a falling birth rate in Ireland and the rest of Europe. While the traditional family is now being replaced in many cases by new family forms, we do not know the reasons why people are makingthe choices they are and whether or not these choices are leading to greater well-being. While demographic research has attempted to explain the new trends in family formation and fertility, there has been little research on people's attitudes to family formation and having children. This bookpresents the results of the first major study to examine people's attitudes to family formation and childbearing in Ireland. Based on a nationwide representative sample of 1,404 men and women in the childbearing age group, the study was carried out against a backdrop of changing gender role attitudes and behaviour as well as significant demographic change.

Transformations in Gender Roles and Public Policies in Sweden

Sweden--where 86 percent of mothers of preschool children are in the labor force--is an ideal place to examine new models for the successful combining of working and parenting. In that country, a concerted effort--by government, organized labor, and other institutions--has been made to equalize the burdens of parenting between men and women, and to adapt employment conditions to meet parental needs. Moen examines how the changing patterns of work-family relations have affected Swedish parents of young children. Drawing on national survey data collected from 1968 to 1981, she describes the changing work attachments of mothers of preschoolers, traces the of implications these changes for the well-being of both mothers and fathers, and offers evidence about the consequences of public policies adopted to facilitate the reconciliation of work and family roles. Moen's analysis shows that women, assuming an unequal burden, were far more prone than men to psychological strain and daily fatigue. However, the gender differences narrowed over the 1978-1981 period: Mothers experienced a reduction in psychological distress, while fathers reported an increase in daily fatigue. Part-time work and parental leave policies enhanced the well-being of mothers, while worktime discretion improved the well-being of both parents. The lessons for the United States are critical, since the major factors capable of improving the well-being of Swedish parents--liberal parental leaves and reduced working hours--are not available to most American working parents. In fact, there are now more American than Swedish mothers of preschoolers working full-time hours. The Swedish experience provides a valuable point of reference as well as concrete examples of ways that Americans might deal with critical issues of work and family life.

Paternal Factors in Child Development

Author: Henry B. Biller

Publisher: ABC-CLIO

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 325

Biller gives compelling evidence that fathers--so relatively under-researched--are very important to sound child development. He focuses on the positive results of active paternal involvment that effect an overall family environment, which is distributively nurturing and satisfying. The presence of a caring father encourages a child's body image, self-esteem, moral standards, and other important qualities. The child-father relationship is demonstrated to impact later life adjustment. Biller establishes, too, that variations in paternal involvment influence not only children but general family well-being including spousal relationships. This is a needed and timely work essential to understanding fathers' roles and potential in family life.

Employment and the Family

The Reconfiguration of Work and Family Life in Contemporary Societies

Rates of employment amongst mothers of young children have risen rapidly in recent years. Attitudes to gender roles have changed, and both employers and governments have had to adjust to new realities. But some argue that recent changes in employment relations are making work more family 'unfriendly'. What are the real consequences of change? Rosemary Crompton explores the origins and background of this radical shift in the gendered division of labour. Topics covered include the changing attitudes to gender roles and family life, the gendered organisational context, and recent changes in employment relations and their impact on work-life articulation. A comparative analysis of Britain, France, Norway, Finland, the United States and Portugal provides an assessment of the varying impact of state policies, and the changing domestic division of labour. Crompton draws on original research and situates her findings within contemporary theoretical and empirical debates.
