Research & summaries discussion question

Role overload refers to the understanding that demands of work and family leave individuals strained and overwhelmed while role buffering refers to the understanding that both parents (or others assuming a parenting role) act in ways to buffer the effects of stress associated with dual roles.

Using the UMUC library or a comparable local library database, locate one recently published (within the past 5 years) academic journal article that reports issues and challenges 1) facing parents in the workplace (a non-military setting) or 2) focusing on parents serving in the military.

What are the challenges facing working/military parents? Their children? Their adolescent children? Their adult children and/or grandchildren? What are the available supports and resources, and/or strategies used by parents to address these issues?
