abstract

  • Work. What comes to mind? Most of us think in terms of the work for which we are paid or the jobs that we would like to have. Seldom do we also think of the things we do at home, the care that we provide for our families. Yet, this unpaid work can influence our job, just as the demands of the workplace can affect our home life. Together, the expectations of both types of work can sometimes be over-whelming.
