Abstract

In this groundbreaking study, Linda Cusworth explores the impact of parental employment or unemployment on the educational and emotional well-being of their children using a case study from the British Household Panel Study. The increase in maternal employment and lone parenthood in the last few decades will make this a key volume for social policy, public policy and sociology academics and policy makers wishing to know more about the implications on our children.
