Issues of How to Harmonize Work and Family

The issues of balancing work with a family life were surveyed by the department of Gender & Sociology of the Institute of Sociology of the Academy of Science of the CR in an April questionnaire. No problems were reported by almost a quarter of respondents (23%). If some problems were reported they occurred during the third year of the child’s life. Half of respondents reported that they problems with how to balance work and family duties appeared at this stage.

Another important milestone seems to be the 6th year of the child’s life. At that time problems occurred for four out of five respondents who experienced problems. Apart from establishing the fact of difficult balancing of work and family life it would be interesting to follow the reasons why the difficulties occur . . .
