Publisher: [Ottawa, Canada] Health Canada 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://digbig.com/4xbya' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:53:48 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early years Into & out of work INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Researchers have long been interested in understanding the strategies that individuals and families employ to cope with stressful events and circumstances. Although much has been written about coping strategies and processes, there has been a lack of integration among the researchers studying family coping, individual coping and organizational support for coping. As a result, these three fields have developed in relative isolation, despite the obvious overlap in their content. It is the intent of this report to provide a holistic picture of how strategies applied by the key stakeholders in the work life equation the individual, the family and the organization help employees cope with work life conflict. Accordingly, the key objective of this report is to identify coping strategies that are associated with lower levels of the four forms of work life conflict: role overload, work-to-family interference, family-to-work interference and caregiver strain.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The timing of maternal work and time with children /

by Stewart, Jay | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: I use data from the American Time Use Survey to examine how maternal employment affects when during the day that mothers of pre-school-age children spend doing enriching childcare and whether they adjust their schedules to spend time with their children at more-desirable times of day. I find that employed mothers shift enriching childcare time from workdays to nonwork days. On workdays, full-time employed parents shift enriching childcare time toward evenings, but there is little shifting among part-time employed mothers. I find no evidence that full-time employed mothers adjust their schedules to spent time with their children at more-preferred times of day, whereas part-time employed mothers shift employment to later in the day.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A cost benefit analysis of early childhood intervention : evidence from a randomised evaluation of a parenting programme /

by O'Neill, Donal | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: IZA DP No. 4518Summary: A number of researchers and policy makers have recently argued that the most effective way of dealing with long-run disadvantage and the intergenerational transmission of poverty is through early childhood intervention and in particular policies aimed at supporting the family in early childhood development. In this paper we carry out a randomised evaluation of one such programme aimed at improving the skills and parenting strategies of parents, particularly those who find their child's behaviour difficult or challenging. Our evaluation shows that the treatment significantly reduced behavioural problems in young children when measured 6 months after the intervention. Furthermore our detailed cost analysis, combined with a consideration of the potential long-run benefits associated with the programme, suggest that the long-run rate of return to society from this programme is likely to be relatively high.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
