dc.description.abstractResearch indicates that working mothers of young children are at a heightened risk for negative outcomes resulting from work-family conflict. This study examined the associations between work-schedule flexibility, child care affordability, and quality of life in working mothers of young children and the moderating effect of child care affordability on the association between work-schedule flexibility and quality of life. A sample of 340 working mothers in the United States completed online questionnaires including measures of work-schedule flexibility, child care affordability, and quality of life. Results indicated that work-schedule flexibility and child care affordability were both associated with quality of life in working mothers of young children. The association between work-schedule flexibility and quality of life was no longer significant after controlling for child care affordability. Child care affordability moderated the association between work-schedule flexibility and quality of life. The current findings have implications for employers and policy makers.
