Marit Rebane, Department of Finance and Economics, TUT (co-author Fabrizio Bernardi, European University Institute) will present: "Shorter Dinner and Other Aspects of Growing Up with a Single-Mother"
Abstract: The time diaries of 7,137 children aged from 3 to 10 years are analysed in order to investigate the start of social inequalities rising from family structure and mother´s educational background. Data come from 2002-03 and 2008-09 Italian time-use surveys. Children´s use of free time is compared in intact and lone-mother families while taking into account mother´s level of education. The main finding is that in the case of parental divorce, the children of university educated mothers lose most. In some cases, children of lowly educated lone-mothers use their time more effectively than their counterparts in intact families. Results underline the great “time-famine” of university educated single mothers, and the need for government interventions for single-mother families. Previous studies emphasise that the inequalities that start in the beginning of life are especially hard to overcome.
