Expansion of Full-Day Childcare and Subjective Well-Being of Mothers: Interdependencies with Culture and Resources

This study investigates whether an expansion of state-subsidized full-day childcare may improve the subjective well-being of mothers of children under school age by acting as a boundary-spanning resource to facilitate the combination of employment and childcare responsibilities. It extends previous studies that showed contradictory results by demonstrating that the relationship with parental subjective ...

Parental Leave Benefits and Breastfeeding in Germany: Effects of the 2007 Reform

While breastfeeding is associated with health benefits for both mothers and children, it may also make it difficult for mothers to return to the labor market early. Maternity and parental leave regulations have been developed to mitigate this conflict. In 2007, Germany passed a reform introducing a new parental leave benefit (Elterngeld). In this paper, we address the question of whether the new parental ...

Ganztagsschule und Hort erhöhen die Erwerbsbeteiligung von Müttern mit Grundschulkindern

Die Erwerbsbeteiligung von Müttern ist in Deutschland im Vergleich zu anderen OECD-Ländern noch immer gering. Im Mittelpunkt stand bisher meist die Betreuung von Kindern im Kita-Alter. Doch der Betreuungsbedarf endet nicht mit der Einschulung eines Kindes. Der vorliegende Bericht untersucht auf Basis des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP) daher, inwiefern nachmittägliche Betreuungsmöglichkeiten für ...

Parental Leave Policies and Child Development: A Review of Empirical Findings

Parental leave policies are a major policy tool used across OECD countries to support families before and after child birth. There are large differences across countries in the amount and the duration of benefit payments as well as leave entitlement periods. Despite these differences, the shared goal of parental leave policies is to reconcile family life and work, and support child development. While ...

School Entry, Afternoon Care and Mothers' Labour Supply

Most literature on the relationship between childcare availability and maternal labour force participation examines childcare for preschool aged children. Yet families must continue to arrange childcare once their children enter primary school, particularly in countries where the school day ends at lunchtime. In this paper we examine the case of Germany, a country that has moved from an exclusively ...

Kürzere Elternzeit von Müttern: gleichmäßigere Aufteilung der Familienarbeit?

Durch die Elterngeldreform 2007 und den Ausbau der Kindertageseinrichtungen der letzten Jahre sind in Deutschland Rahmenbedingungen geschaffen worden, die eine gleichmäßigere Aufteilung der Erwerbs- und Familienarbeit erleichtern sollen. Dieser Beitrag untersucht, ob die Länge der Elternzeit beider Elternteile die Aufteilung der Familienarbeit mittelfristig beeinflusst, wenn beide Partner wieder erwerbstätig ...

Maternal Labour Supply and All-Day Primary Schools in Germany

The economic literature provides vast evidence of how public provision of day care for children below school age increases the labour force participation of mothers. The causal effect of all-day schooling in primary school on maternal supply has been examined less since morning-only schooling is less common in developed countries. The present article summarises the findings of (mostly) economic studies ...
