Readable and challenging, this four-year study of three hundred middle-class and working-class couples debunks the myth of the overwrought working mother with her insensitive husband and neglected children. Drawing on extensive cross-disciplinary research, Rosalind Barnett and Caryl Rivers argue that “collaborative couples,” busy as they are, thrive in their diverse roles, and inspire competence and confidence in their children.
