New research reveals parents are struggling to adjust as they get entangled between the pressures of full-time employment and the demands of caring for their children.

The authors examined how the introduction of ROWE (Results Only Work Environment) has impacted parents' perceptions of their time.

Under this scheme employees are paid for results, rather than their time.

The data showed that both parents saw changes in working hours such as ROWE as a major factor to their time, yet only mothers reported increased schedule control and improved time adequacy.

However, this change was shown to be in perception only, as little change was reported in the actual time spent with children beyond evening meals.

The study is published in the Journal of Marriage and Family.
