Working and Parenting During a Pandemic: Children's and Parents' Perceptions of Work-Life Balance While Working From Home. By: Levine, Kenneth J; Aley, Melinda and Aladé, Fashina. 2024. Management Communication Quarterly. Vol. 38 Issue 2, p207-220.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many parents to work from home while children participated in distance learning, providing a unique opportunity to examine what children observed about work-life balance. Parent-child dyads (N = 194) completed online surveys about their perceptions of work-life balance. Examination of mothers and fathers found similar challenges about working at home. Parents reported that work-life balance was problematic while children reported positive work-life balance for their parents due to the time spent together while everyone was at home.
