      Abstract: It is a pleasure to write to you once again at the beginning of the calendar year. It is hard for me to grasp the fact that as I write this, two years have passed since I was in Chennai India for a family conference, just prior to the global impact of a pandemic that shut everything down. This was the last time I was able to be face to face with colleagues outside my own institution. Two years later we continue to be impacted by COVID-19.As I reflect back on the previous year for the Journal of Comparative Family Studies, I want to structure my comments around life and people prior to the disruption, with the intent that it gives us hope for the future. Let me illustrate my point by first acknowledging the ... Read More

      Abstract: Welcome to Volume 53, #1, of the 2022 Journal of Comparative Family Studies. This is the start of a new year and we are still in the midst of a global pandemic. The culprit remains SARS COVID-19, but this time our concern is focused on the Omicron variant. This continuing saga has made visiting loved ones, family celebrations, and even attending school impossible for many, and when such activities are possible, they are fraught with anxiety and discomfort. Much of the world has received scant access to vaccines. In the developed world, a significant number of anti-vaccine holdouts have allowed the virus time and hosts so that it may evolve into more transmissible and sometimes lethal variants. The world seems ... Read More

  • Parenting Practices and Emerging Adult Well-Being in the United States and
           China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Emerging adulthood is defined as a stage of the lifespan between ages 18-25 in which youth gradually transition to adulthood roles (Arnett, 2000). This stage is characterized by self-focus, identity exploration, and instability in relationships, housing, education, and occupation. Arnett (2000) proposed this distinct stage in adult development as recent changes in social trends shaped young people's trajectories into adulthood. Overall, the transition from adolescence to adulthood is commonly marked by growing autonomy and individuality from one's family (Erikson, 1968). Emerging adulthood involves many changes and challenges including stressful daily life, relationship difficulties, and emotional and financial ... Read More

  • Family Duties and Job Flexibility: Tradeoffs for Chinese Urban, Educated
           Mothers with Toddlers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Since the 1980s, when China began transitioning from a state to a market economy, job trajectories have become increasingly unstable, as China moved away from the "iron rice bowl of lifetime employment" model to one in which workers face a more diversified labor market and a broader range of choices, often circulating across multiple jobs (Kim et al., 2016). Such changes are particularly critical for women, whose opportunities and constraints often differ from those of their male counterparts, due to their family and parenting roles (Song, 2015; Damaske & Fresch, 2016; Moen, 2001).Studies exploring how women balance work and family exclusively focus on their full-time versus part-time career pathways, dichotomizing ...

  • The Changing Patterns and Determinants of Stay-at-Home Motherhood in Urban
           China, 1982 to 2015

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Past decades have witnessed reduced gender inequality around the world (Goldscheider et al., 2015). The rate of female labor force participation signals women's autonomy to participate in the public spheres beyond their roles in the private spheres (England, 2010). However, even as women continue to make significant progress in the labor market, their responsibilities in the household have not reduced proportionately (England, 2010; Shu & Meagher, 2018). This inconsistency has been especially prevalent in Asian societies, such as Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and China. These societies promote a "pro-work" conservative gender ideology (Knight & Brinton, 2017) that emphasizes women's educational and career advances ... Read More

  • Parenting in Bangladesh: A Review of the Literature from 2006 to 2018

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Worldwide, parenting is defined as the care and handling of children according to specific beliefs, the ultimate goal of which is to raise a child as "a competent adult" (Keller et al., 2005, p. 158). According to Jackson (2000, p. 245), "parenting is the performance of all the actions necessary to promote and support the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood." Parenting is considered a lifelong activity that extends far beyond childhood (Goodnow, 2006). Hoghughi (1998) described parenting as a vital public health dimension in society, with its potential to promote health and well-being, or conversely, to hinder physical and emotional development, the latter ...

  • The Influence of Father Involvement on Their Children's Self-Esteem in the
           Arab World

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Father involvement remains a neglected topic in the Arab world despite fathers' historically central role in the region (Joseph, 1996). The importance of fathers stems from a long tradition of kinship that places Arab fathers at the center of providing for their families. This system and the accompanying values and beliefs have been in place since pre-Islamic times and remain visible today. Despite this, the father's role remains largely understudied in the region, especially in the resource-rich Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Following an earlier one-country pilot project, we conducted the current ten-country study to further illuminate nuances of the association between father involvement and ... Read More

  • Becoming a Bride: Traditional Societies Coping with the Transition from
           Taboo on Sexuality to Family Life Among Bedouin Arabs and Haredi Jews

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The regulation of marriage and the supervision of sexuality under the law has always been accepted practice around the world. As in Western countries, Israeli law regulates the age of marriage, polygamy, prohibited relationships, and the marriage contract, though the state minimizes its involvement in the individual's choices regarding intimate relationships. In traditional societies there is usually strict gender segregation, and therefore the relationship between the couple is structured, hence, not based on romance created in chance encounters but as part of society's role in guaranteeing its continuity. The value assigned to the institution of family and the close supervision of sexuality require clear ... Read More

      Abstract: Equality among heterosexual couples comes in different forms but is possible in every society. This claim is the central argument of Creating Equality at Home: How 25 Couples Around the World Share Housework and Childcare. This volume brings together family scholars from all over the world to uncover how couples from twenty-two countries share housework and childcare. Through interviews with heterosexual married and cohabiting couples with children, the contributors elaborate how parents negotiate and realize the division of household tasks, focusing on couples who have achieved equality in their households.Deutsch and Gaunt start by stating that while gender inequality is narrowing, women are still working more ...
