9780029067055: Juggling: The Unexpected Advantages of Balancing Career and Home for Women and Their Families

Never before have so many women and mothers had the opportunity or necessity of engaging in employment outside the home while still having to care for those within it. This book argues that women face more difficulties within each role than conflicts between them. It contends indeed that this process of "juggling" can have beneficial effects on career performance and domestic well-being.

From Publishers Weekly:

Despite the stress, doubt and guilt perhaps bound to assail a woman who combines several roles at the same time, Crosby, head of Smith College's psychology department, contends that the need to juggle these responsibilities often improves the performance of each, benefits mental health and makes for happier mother-child relationships. Rather than a how-to guide, this challenging, broadly researched study and review of gender- and sex-role theories since Anna Freud urges women to stop blaming themselves for the difficulties entailed by such multiple roles. Stress, emphasizes Crosby, imposes less strain between the varied functions than within each one, citing such troubles as sexism in the workplace, bad marital relations, acute financial pressures and the like. The author further charges that most of these problems stem from a tension between American individualism and social responsibility.

From Library Journal:

Yes, claims social psychologist Crosby, there are unexpected benefits for women who juggle careers with family responsibilities. From hundreds of studies and interviews, Crosby provides hard evidence that jugglers are happier, better adjusted, and less prone to depression than women who try to struggle on at home, Donna Reed-style, in nuclear families. Moreover, children and husbands reap benefits also. Bluntly recognizing that motherhood is hard work, Crosby says mothers need to be relieved of the guilt they feel when they give up exclusive care of their children. This solid book is based on research, not speculation, and is sure to provoke discussion in public and academic circles. Recommended.
