Abstract:

"Today a majority of married women work outside the home, most of them full-time. But society still hasn't come to terms with mothers' continuing careers, and they are feeling the stress of too much to do and too little time to do it. Twenty married working mothers with pre-school children describe the stress they face juggling their roles as wife, mother, homemaker, and wage earner and how much support they get from their husbands. These full-time workers were still responsible for most of the child care, emotional nurturing and housework, and feel their husbands don't help enough with the children and around the home. They were satisfied with their jobs and felt good about their careers in general, but also had to cope with worries that they were short-changing their young children in time and quality of mothering. This book examines how the working mothers themselves feel about these stresses and also analyses their responses from an academic perspective. It also provides a basis for examining larger issues regarding a woman's role in society and the expectations they must deal with."--Bookwire This book offers a solution to the everyday working mothers' problems and stresses. After these women find a solution to their problems, they will feel confident in the direction in which they take.
