Work-family (in)balance and parenting: A dynamic approach to the impact of daily work-family experiences in both mothers and fathers on their day-to-day parenting practices.

 Nowadays, as many women have entered the workforce and men are assumed to have greater responsibility for childcare, the boundaries between work and family are more porous. More than ever before, a working father may miss work because his child has the flu, and a working mother may miss her child's big soccer game because of an important meeting. Not surprisingly, many parents experience difficulties when it comes to work-family balance, and previous research convincingly demonstrated that work-family conflict has detrimental consequences for parental well-being. However, less is known about the consequences of work-family (in)balance for family interactions, and for parenting more specifically. This is unfortunate as emerging research shows that work-family conflict is also related to a broad range of negative child outcomes. Parenting may be one important mechanism here. Our present project aims to provide the most thorough and comprehensive examination of the link between work-family experiences and parenting to date. It represents a unique contribution beyond previous research in four major ways: (a) investigating both the dark and bright side of work-family experiences and parenting, (b) combining questionnaire and diary studies, (c) focusing on both mothers and fathers (and the interplay between both), and (d) examining the intermediate role of parental burnout and psychological availability in this link between work-family (in)balance and parenting.
