      Abstract: This issue of the Journal of Comparative Family Studies follows various iterations of the theme introduced by Chau-kiu Cheung and Jessica Chi-mei Li in their paper Moderating the Harmful Effects of Police Nightshift Work on Work–Family Balance by Adjusting Shift Autonomy. The theme that these authors introduce is from the conservation of resources theory. This is a a middle range theory that the authors use effectively to explain the relationship between work-family balance and shift work amongst a sample of Hong Kong police. Although the theory has two levels of analysis (the individual balancing of resources of sleep and stress; and, the balance of family resources), the other papers in this issue also share this ...

  • Moderating the Harmful Effects of Police Nightshift Work on Work-Family
           Balance by Adjusting Shift Autonomy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: According to conservation of resources theory, working people's family life thrives with resource gain as opposed to loss from the workplace, reflecting the boon of conserving resources (Landolfi et al., 2021). However, the workplace can restrain the gain and its effectiveness in mitigating the loss, according to institutional theory, which emphasizes the influences of institutional norms or roles on the member of the institution (Blair-Loy & Wharton, 2002; Jiao et al., 2005). The restraint has remained an issue for examination, as in the present study of the work-family balance of police officers. Herein, nightshift work and work hazards represent resource losses, autonomy to schedule shiftwork registers a ... Read More

  • Migration, Marriage, and Cohabitation Among Hispanic Immigrant Women in
           the United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: While migration is often motivated by economic need or opportunities, migration is similarly shaped by family life, and vice versa, as migration and family formation often occur around the same life stage (Mulder & Wagner, 1993). A substantial body of research has examined temporal connections between migration and fertility (Carter, 2000; Ford, 1990; Kulu & Milewski, 2007; Lindstrom & Saucedo, 2007; Lübke, 2015; Parrado, 2011; Parrado & Flippen, 2012), often demonstrating the disruptive effects of migration on childbearing timing. Union formation among immigrant populations is similarly connected and interdependent with migration (Hill, 2004; Ortiz, 1996), yet less documented in the literature. Furthermore, most ... Read More

  • Mothers' Willingness to Sacrifice for Their Children: An Exploratory
           Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mothers are primary caregivers for their babies. Although the manners in which mothers raise their children could vary in reality, 'good mothers' are generally expected to be devoting and even sacrifice something valued for the greater good, especially of their children (Arendell, 2000; Elliot, Powell, & Brenton, 2015). Mother's self-sacrifice has been long considered an inborn instinct across societies and cultures. Drawing on the traditional conception of family, mothers tend to perceive/experience strong conflicts between work duties and family obligations; they are pressured to put greater emphasis on their children's needs than their careers (Bahr & Bahr, 2001). Drawing on the ideology of intensive mothering ... Read More

  • "She Thinks I'll Marry Her, but I Won't": The Gendered Conceptualisation
           of Consensual Unions in Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: 'Man kills himself over bride price in Northern Region:" This was the caption of a story reported by a leading Ghanaian newspaper, the Daily Graphic, on the 21st of April 2016. The story behind the caption as reported by the newspaper, was that two young lovers who had migrated to Accra from a Northern Region town in Ghana, had been living together like husband and wife—a consensual union—for about five years. The 19-year old woman was said to have on several occasions impressed upon her partner to go back to their hometown and perform the customary marriage rites. Her concerns not being addressed by the man, she decided to invite some relatives of hers from their hometown to talk to him. The meeting between her ... Read More

           Refugee Background: A Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: By mid-2021 there were an estimated 84 million forcibly displaced people around the world, and a high proportion of these are children and families (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, 2021). Many will seek protection in another country as refugees or humanitarian entrants. The 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (UNHCR, 2010), the key international legal document defining who is considered to be a refugee, states that a 'refugee' is a person who: (a) is outside their country of nationality or habitual residence, (b) has a well-founded fear of being persecuted because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and (c) is ...

  • The Impact of Maternal Parenting Style on Sibling Relationships: A
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Family is conceptualized as a complex dynamic system to interpret children's social, behavioural, and emotional development from systematic and cultural perspectives (Minuchin, 2002). According to the Ecological Model and Family System Theory, the family system is constructed by intricate subsystems including parent, child, and sibling (Minuchin, 1995; Simadi et al., 2003). Each interdependent subsystem has implicit boundaries and mutually influences each other, and any individual changes would also have a significant impact on the whole family system (Feinberg et al., 2012; Schermerhorn & Cummings, 2008). Specifically, in a multi-child family, if parents form a closer relationship with one of their children, it ... Read More
