This first comprehensive study asking children and their parents for their views on work and family life offers dozens of proven strategies for coping with the stresses and complications of work and family life. Noted work-family researcher Ellen Galinsky has compiled solid evidence that working parents are capable of providing their children with a healthy, loving environment. In addition to overturning accepted thinking about quantity v. quality time, how much parents really enjoy their jobs, and what messages we're sending to children about work, Galinsky also shares real-life stories of how working families stay close and outlines a brilliant new set of operating principles to help parents feel more competent at work and at home, improving life in both spheres.
