Abstract: This participant hermeneutic study focused on the role interaction between work and family responsibilities when one person fulfills the dual role of parent and worker. Three questions were of primary interest: (a) To what degree and in what ways do the role of parent and occupational worker conflict? (b) Is role conflict between that of parent and worker perceived and experienced differently by male and female? (c) In what ways and to what deqree does social learning influence role conflict between home and nonhome roles?
