Buy Article:

$32.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

Parents perform a wide range of tasks to ensure the well‐being of their children and the family as a whole. While, between them, most parents face similar sets of core tasks, they adopt very different coping strategies responding, in part, to the household's specific social and economic circumstances. To an important extent, the economic context of household behaviour is shaped by government policies which seek to further a range of different, and sometimes, conflicting objectives.
