The Stress of Balancing Work and Family

Americans know from their own lives the stress of balancing work and family obligations. Extensive rhetoric from the media and academic worlds is difficult to disentangle, sometimes pointing to seemingly different conclusions regarding the state of work and family balance, the time parents are spending with their children, and the impacts such conflicts have on individual and family health. The New America Foundation's Next Social Contract Initiative and Workforce and Family Program seek to cut through the rhetoric with an analysis of the research through their paper, "The Stress of Balancing Work and Family: Impacts on Parent and Child Health." Come join us as Kelleen Kaye and David Gray discuss where the research leads us in examining the stress of work and family conflict. Kelleen Kaye is an analyst and policy expert on family structure and family relationships as they relate to child, youth, and parental well-being.
