Abstract:
This thesis explores the practices that in working parents' experience constitute 'family' and 'work' and the boundaries they manage between the two. Not many studies focus on the experiential dimension of the interface between work and studies focus on the experiential dimension of the interface between work and family. This research provides empirical and theoretical elements to explore how the emotional focus of families' daily life is experienced in connection (or in disconnection) with their work life. The analysis of how working parents negotiate times and spaces for work and home facilitates an understanding of the symbolic attachments people invest in these domains of daily life.
