Contemporary motherhood: the impact of children on adult time

21 Aug 2007
Description

This book provides a comprehensive account of how parents divide their time between caring for children, housework, paid work and leisure. By looking at how the costs and benefits of children are currently conceptualised and apportioned, the book shows what becoming a mother entails and why it is so challenging to raise children. Suggesting an explanation for why fertility rates are dramatically dropping, the book makes a significant contribution to the debate on contemporary motherhood.

The introduction is available free online via the link below.
