MPRC Spring 2012 Seminar Series

Speaker: Melissa A. Milkie, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Maryland Title: How Does Mothers Time with Children Matter? About the Talk: Does the amount of time children spend with their mothers matter for children's well-being? Although intensive mothering ideology underscores the irreplaceable nature of mothers' time for children's well-being, and social theories posit that mothers' time is important, empirical evidence is scant. In this study, using 1997 and 2002 waves of nationally representative time diary and survey data, we examine how the amount of focused time mothers' spend with children ages 3 to 18, as well as the amount of time mothers are accessible to children is related to academic, social-emotional, and health outcomes. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 23, 2012
