The Study of Women In Midlife GRACE K. BARUCH AND JEANNE BROOKS-GUNN To describe the middle years-that relatively long span when one is neither young nor old-as a neglected period may no longer be accurate, given current scientific and popular interest in adult development and aging. But midlife is still too often seen merely as a kind of staging area on the way to old age, when one gathers one's forces and tries to stock up on assets-health, money, relationships-that will be needed for the rigors of the last phase of life. The middle years have been characterized more as a transition period than as a time of growth, satisfaction, and creativity. As this volume will show, although midlife is not without its difficulties, it is, for many women, a time of unexpected pleasure, even power. MAJOR THEMES A central theme of this volume is the impact of social change. The influence of economic conditions, of ideology, of the normative timing of such life events as age of marriage and childbearing, are addressed in many chapters from hlany different perspectives. Social changes are shown to have both negative and positive consequences. On the nega tive side, for example, the sex differential in life expectancy is a biosocial phenomenon that greatly restricts the availability of sexual partners-or, more precisely, heterosexual partners-for older women

Mothers' participation in child care : patterns and consequences by Rosalind C Barnett( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consequences of mothers' participation in child care (interaction and child-care tasks) on 160 Caucasian middle-class fathers and mothers were examined in an interview study of parents of kindergarten and fourth grade children. In half of the families, mothers were employed. Three forms of mothers' participation were examined in relation to two categories of consequences: role strain and well-being. Role-strain items referred to immediate and specific problems such as time and energy constraints and role conflicts. Well-being items assessed self-esteem, life satisfaction, and quality of experience in the parental and marital roles. In general, relationships among mothers' participation and both categories of consequences were stronger in dual-earner families. In these families, mothers' role strain was not consistently related to mothers' participation. In contrast, fathers' role strain was correlated with mothers' participation, especially proportional interaction time. The more mothers did, relative to fathers, the less role strain fathers reported. With respect to well-being consequences, for fathers, increased mothers' participation was associated with decrements in feelings of involvement in the role of parent but gains in assessments of the marriage. The opposite pattern emerged among mothers. Increased maternal participation was associated with more positive feelings in the role of mother and less positive feelings in the marital role.

Correlates of fathers' participation in family work : a technical report by Grace K Baruch( Book )

4 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses the nature, extent, antecedents, and consequences of fathers' participation in child care and home chores. Data was collected from 160 families with children in kindergarten and fourth-grade classes. The sample was equally divided between the two grade levels and within each grade level by sex. Within each of the four groups thus formed, half the mothers were employed. Dimensions of fathers' participation selected for analysis included total, proportional, and solo interaction time; solo performance of specific child care tasks; and performance of traditionally feminine household chores. Antecedents thought to influence fathers' participation included mother's and father's employment status and pattern, demographics, family structure, parental attitudes, and parental socialization. Consequences of fathers' participation were conceptualized as involving role strain and well-being. Children's sex role-related beliefs and values were measured by assessing attitudes concerning children's activities, adult occupational roles, and adult family roles, and by addressing several dimensions within each domain. Results provide descriptive data on each of the five father participation variables, correlational data describing the relationship between antecedents and the five father participation variables, consequences of fathers' participation for parents, descriptive data concerning children's sex role attitudes, and consequences for children of fathers' participation. A four-page reference list and 28 tables are appended. (RH)

Fathers' participation in family work : effects on children's sex role attitudes by Grace K Baruch( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To investigate dimensions of fathers' participation in family work and to examine the effects of each dimension on children's sex-role related attitudes, this study collected data from 160 fathers of kindergarten and fourth-grade children, their wives, and their children. Fathers and mothers were interviewed jointly as well as separately and they independently filled out a questionnaire. Children were individually interviewed at school. The following categories of data related to dimensions of fathers' participation were reported: (1) intensity of interaction with children; (2) absolute amount of time spent in child care or home chores versus the proportional amount of time spent (I.E., the number of hours spent by the father divided by the number of hours spent by both parents); (3) solo participation versus participation with the mother; (4) performance of household chores versus child care; and (5) responsiblity for tasks versus simply performing them. Children's sex-role sterotyping and attitudes were assessed in three domains: current interests and activities, adult occupational roles, and adult family roles. In addition, children's occupational aspirations were also ascertained. Fathers' participation patterns were associated with maternal employment status and parents' sex-role attitudes (specifically, their attitudes about the male role). (As)

On the psychological well-being of women in the mid-years by Rosalind C Barnett( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceptualization of the lives of adult women and the forces affecting their well-being have concentrated on five constructs: (1) chronological age; (2) menopause and the empty nest; (3) marital status; (4) parity; and (5) multiple role involvement as a source of stress. A re-examination of these variables focused on the concerns and gratifications experienced by women in various domains of life and their relationships to family status, employment status, age, and sense of well-being. A disproportionate random sample (n=238) of women aged 35-55, who were never married, married with children, married without children, or divorced with children, were interviewed using a structured survey instrument developed empirically on the basis of first-stage interviews with approximately 72 women. Results showed that women in the middle years scored high on all well-being indices. Eight indices of well-being included in the survey protocol were subjected to further analysis; two factors, mastery and pleasure, emerged. The findings indicated non-significant and/or weak relationships between these well-being factors and the five constructs. The results question the utility of these constructs that are often cited as critical to understanding psychological well-being among women in the middle years. (Author/NRB)

If the study of midlife had begun with women by Grace K Baruch( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major themes from an ongoing study of women in midlife were identified using data from interviews with 60 women 35 to 55 who vary in family status; never-married, married/childless, married with children and work status (working in high, medium, or low-prestige occupations or at home). Interviews focused on issues, rewards, and concerns. There were variations rather than commonalities in the developmental tasks women faced in midlife. The most frequent theme was the desire to devote increased attention to the self in contrast to the devotion to others characteristic of earlier years. Most women vaguely assumed that a love attachment to a man, rather than to a career or mentor, would shape their adult life. Exceptions to this pattern were those women whose mothers had been the major economic provider. Many women regretted their failure to develop an identity as worker in the adult world. The image of midlife and retrospective reports of earlier stages of adult development are contrasted with Levinson's work on men. (Author)
