Work and Family—Allies or Enemies?

For many men and women, juggling work and family responsibilities is a significant source of stress. Fortunately, few of us have to face work-family stress alone. Or, perhaps we should say that the fortunate among us do not have to face work-family stress alone. People can benefit from social support offered by other individuals and by institutions. By social support, we mean some sort of exchange of resources between individuals that is intended to aid the person receiving the support. These resources take a wide variety of forms, including information, direct help with daily chores, understanding, and even praise.

Keywords:   work, family, work-family stress, social support, family responsibilities
