Caring for children: the childcare dilemmas that working parents face

Research output: Contribution to journal/periodicalArticleProfessional

Abstract

More and more women with young or school-age children are now going out to work. If the father works as well, parents have to choose between formal paid childcare and informal unpaid childcare. Informal childcare is the most common resort of people with a low level of education, but because increasing numbers of older women and women with children are now going out to work, the supply of informal childcare is shrinking and, as a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people with a low level of education to combine work and childcare.
