Abstract

Purpose

The aim of this study is to determine if there is a relationship between mothers working nonstandard schedules and a negative impact on their children’s behavior.

Background

Nonstandard schedules are in demand among many professions due to the emerging 24/7 economy. With women accounting for nearly half of the U.S. labor force, more mothers are bound to be working nonstandard schedules. With these schedules, mothers are likely to miss important family routines with potential consequences to the children’s behavior.

Method

A thorough search was conducted using CINAHL Complete, PubMed, and ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source. Peer-reviewed studies written in English, published between 2004 and 2015 on mother’s or parent’s work schedule and the effect it has on the children’s behavior or wellbeing were considered.

Results

Seven studies that were peer-reviewed, written in English, published between 2004 and 2015 on mother’s or parent’s work schedule and the effect it has on the children’s behavior or wellbeing were selected after meeting the inclusion criteria. The literature reveals support between mothers working nonstandard schedules and negative effects on their children’s behavior.

Conclusion

Mother’s working nonstandard schedules have negative impacts on their children’s behavior, dose-response and long-term effects. This warrants further studies to investigate how to mitigate these negative effects.
