Summary

This policy brief examines the problems of parents who raise young children while working. Discussion contrasts family support systems in the United States with those of other western, industrialized nations, and indicates reasons for the intensification of U.S. family support problems over the last decade. Concluding discussion analyzes present federal legislative activities, state responses, and future policy concerns. It is argued that despite fundamental disagreements about the appropriate role of government in this policy area, a consensus is developing among policymakers and the public about the need to do something about the evident needs of families. Yet despite this, family support efforts are fragmented at best. Policy questions that need to be asked and answered are listed. (RH)
