GOMEZ-URRUTIA, Verónica  e  JIMENEZ-FIGUEROA, Andrés. The work-family conflict in relation to children's right to care. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.1, pp.137-150. ISSN 1692-715X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11600/1692715x.1317190814.

This article is based on a literature review that examines the tension between the social goal of guaranteeing children's rights in Chile and the parallel project of achieving socio-economic and gender equality. The principles behind social programs for children do not consider that, in a context in which increasing numbers of women want and need to enter the labor force, the resources traditionally utilized by families to satisfy their children's needs (i.e., women's unpaid domestic and care work) should not be taken for granted. As a result, such programs leave the tension between paid employment and care work untouched, affecting parent's perceived self-efficacy and children's opportunities to receive proper care. The study concludes that to avoid this paradox it is necessary to re-think children's rights within the framework provided by the concept of co-responsibility.

Palavras-chave : children's rights; gender division of labor; equal opportunity; parent-child relationship; child welfare.
