Childcare as a work support, a child-focused intervention, and a job

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Huston's chapter (see record 2004-00152-009) is critical to our understanding of the ways that low-income families manage the demands of employment and rearing their children. Women who are trying to meet welfare reform mandates to employment are faced with a harsh set of childcare choices. Specifically, these mothers face a market-based system that is unlikely to adequately meet the needs of their children at the subsidy price that the government is likely to pay. Huston underscores a central theme in work by Edin and Lein (1995), that poor women receive too low a wage to be able to afford the high cost of high-quality care on their own. The implications of this substandard care for children's outcomes are grave indeed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
