Abstract

The primary purpose of this research project is to shed light on ways employed parents communicate about parenting in the workplace. This study explores how and with whom employed parents talk about their families in the workplace and how this talk is perceived. Qualitative methods, semi-structured interviews, with ten parents were conducted. The interviews revealed several functions of parent talk, the contexts in which talk about parenting occurs, the conditions in which parent talk is perceived positively, and how parent talk influences people's relationships with colleagues.
