Parenting in the 1990s

Elsa Ferri, Kate Smith

According to a recent study of 6,000 mothers and fathers aged 33, there is little evidence to suggest that full-time employment of both parents is linked to an erosion of family life

This is in terms of joint activities such as family meals, outings, or contact with wider kin and friends. It is long hours (particularly when fathers work more than 50 hours per week) rather than the fact of employment itself which have a detrimental effect.
