"The Brighter Side of Work and Family Life: Family-Friendly Benefits and Positive Family-to-Work Spillover" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p104081_index.html>

Abstract: We use role theory to direct our analysis of the association between family-friendly policies, family role quality, and positive spillover from family to the workplace. Taking data from 104 dual-earner couples with children, we find that a supportive workplace culture is both directly and indirectly associated with positive family-to-work spillover for men and women. Whereas family role quality and positive spillover are mainly associated with time factors for a wife’s job, workplace environment and pressure are important facets of a husband’s job. We also find that women’s experience of positive spillover is associated with her partner’s ability to take care of sick children when the need arises. These findings can be viewed through the lens of gender theory and may be representative of traditionally structured institutions and roles.

Abstract: Since family business children play prominent roles in their family businesses it is important to explore the personal level tensions they experience. Using dialectical relationship theory, this paper explores how family business daughters experienced personal level relational contradictions. The contradiction of connection/separation is central to the experience of family business daughters. The localized version of the connection/separation tension shows up in the experiences of family business daughters, particularly as they grapple with their overlapping roles of “good worker” and “good daughter” and in the in concept of relational currency.

Abstract: Using grounded theory, this study examined family membership development from the perspective of blended family members. Fifty participants experiencing at least one parental divorce were interviewed. The interviews resulted in the development of the Model of Fluid Families. In the model, properties of fluid dynamics (pressure, velocity, density, permeability, entropy, and time and space) were used to illustrate the various factors that contribute to feelings of family among blended and ex-blended family members.

Abstract: This paper argues that accounts of the welfare state as a form of labor market regulation fail to note the long history of the regulation of marriage and family life through US welfare policy. Feminist critiques of labor market approaches have implicitly accepted the emphasis upon welfare as a mechanism for labor market regulation. However, such a focus cannot explain current “pro-marriage” initiatives in the US. Accordingly, this paper traces the long history of the US regulation of family, so that we can better understand how precedent has led to contemporary regulation, and what is distinct about current welfare initiatives. By replacing the framework of “welfare as labor market regulation,” with the Foucauldian account offered by French sociologist Jacques Donzelot, I seek to explain why contemporary legislation is focusing upon the production of nuclear families and marriage. I argue that American welfare has regulated poor families for over a century, however, the definition of a “problem family,” along with state interventions offered, have shifted over time. Consequently, I suggest that the history of US familial welfarism can be conceptualized into four eras of family regulation; Family Breakup (1820-1890); Family Preservation (1890-1962); Nuclear Family Support (1962-1996); and Nuclear Family Governance (1996-present). Such an analysis also suggests a new relationship between poor families and the state in the context of contemporary neoliberal governance.

Abstract: Family communication schemata and ethnic identity are integral parts of original family life and influence family strength, family satisfaction, and community involvement in one's constructed family. Using hierarchical regression, this study demonstrated the specific relationships among expressiveness, structural-traditionalism, and conflict avoidance from the Family Communication Environment Instrument and ethnic identity affirmation and ethnic identity exploration on family satisfaction, family strength; and community, group, and political involvement.
