Vickers, Margaret, Parris, Melissa Anne and Bailey, Jeff 2004, Working mothers of children with chronic illness: narratives of working and caring, Australian journal of early childhood, vol. 29, no. 1, pp. 39-43.
This paper reports the initial findings of an exploratory, qualitative study of the life and work of people who are working full-time and also caring for a child with chronic illness. The demands of such a lifestyle are significant. Respondents - all women - often reported 'doing-it-all' while constantly being frustrated and challenged in their mothering role.
