For next week, please come prepared to discuss these questions:
Think about the paid work patterns of your parent(s). What is their current situation? Move back 5 years, and another 5 years.
What , if anything, stands out about their paid work? In relation to managing family responsibilities?
Did the need for childcare generate conflicts or require strategizing within the family? What about transportation or when a child was sick? How are the housework responsiblities allocated (did housework get done)?
Has your parent(s) experienced your influenced your decisions about paid work & family? How?
If you are planning to combining paid work & family, how will you do so? (for some you are likely already doing this, what do you do?) If you are not going to do both, what has impacted your decision?Posted by coph0004 at October 26, 2005 11:21 AM
