Maternal Employment and Gender Role Attitudes: Dissonance among British Men and Women in the Transition to Parenthood

This study examines how changes in gender role attitudes of couples after childbirth relate to women's paid work and the type of childcare used.

Previous research examined changes in women's attitudes and employment, or spouses' adaptations to each others' attitudes. This is extended ...

We investigate the relationship between children's cognitive skills and spiteful behavior in a sample of 214 preschoolers aged 5-6 and their mothers. Other-regarding behavior of both mothers and children is elicited through ...
