   schema:reviewBody ""Good Parents or Good Workers? illuminates the everyday lives of poor families and reveals how dramatic changes in family welfare policies over the past decade have, and have not, touched the work, child care practices, and relationships of these often inspiring mothers and fathers. Drawing upon several local, state, and national qualitative studies, this research compliments the mounting evidence available from large-scale quantitative studies. Jill Duerr Berrick, Bruce Fuller, and contributors focus on how women and men are reading the policy signals, rules, and incentives as they attempt to raise their children and earn sufficient income to hold their families together. In short, Good Parents or Good Workers? places the panoply of family policies in the context of the daily demands faced by these parents."--Jacket." ;
