Researchers have historically given considerable focus to the impact employment — the simple fact of working outside the home — has on mothers and their children. However, relatively few studies have focused directly on how the quality of a parent's work life correlates with both the capacity to care for children and the health and development of their children. Many parents today are breaking new ground by organizing their life roles in original ways — such as the dual-earner couple, both of whom work outside the home. Of course, the long-term consequences of variations in work arrangements will not be known until this generation of children grows up. However, the impact of career and work experiences can be assessed on the care that children receive and their current health and development.
