Abstract or Summary
  • An increasing number of children care for themselves (self-care) while their parents are employed outside the home. A literature review suggested a connection between child care concerns and employed parents' increased stress, role overload, and lower productivity. This study evaluated the impact of an educational training program for families with children in self-care. Twenty-one rural families with children currently in self-care participated in this study. For most families, having children in self-care had little impact on factors which influence the parents' employment preformance. The treatment lowered the amount of time parents worried about their self-care children, but did not effect telephone use or the confidence level for parents and children.
