Family life backward in Corona-crisis: no role

The Coronavirus is apolitical – but the accusation is that it is ride a erzkonservatives family picture verb: The distribution of roles between mothers and fathers back the event by Lockdown, home office and a lack of childcare in the old times. That's true but also? A new representative study by the Allensbach Institute for demoscopy commissioned by the Federal Ministry for family Affairs comes to quite different conclusions: notes on a systematically one-sided unloading of crisis, loads in the case of the mothers, it is not just. For this, she suggests that the great majority of employers handle considerate with employees, which had closed all schools and kindergartens, problems with child care.

the family mini star Franziska Giffey (SPD) sees it this way: With limited day - care centre and school in the Corona have operation-crisis, unquestionably, a lot of parents feel heavily burdened "and some of their limits is brought," she said to the F. A. Z. "is all The more important that a lot of mothers and fathers shoulders the challenges of this time are increasingly common."

Actually have changed the life circumstances of mothers and fathers in Lockdown, usually quite similar to the way the survey of 1500 working parents shows. So 31 percent of fathers and 29 percent of mothers said they had more than usual working from home. Where parents have had to reduce due to lack of childcare, professional work, back were women slightly more likely – but only slightly: 22 percent of mothers and 18 percent of fathers have reduced their working hours, as this was because the children needed. (For even so a lot of the work for operational reasons, declined.) Just on this comparison the other actors had supported the relapse-Thesis, such as the science centre Berlin, the Director of the Jutta Allmendinger spoke of a "horrific Retraditionalisierung".

In the new study, it also looks at the question of the family the distribution of tasks in a different way: For 59 per cent of the Couple-parents has not changed in the crisis its contribution to the care of the children in relation to the Partner, therefore even. A further fifth said that the distribution of tasks, in fact, had become unequal. The one-fifth compared to is, however, also experienced a less unequal distribution of tasks.

The Deutsche Industrie - und Handelskammertag (DIHK), together with the Ministry for family Affairs in the corporate network "success factor family" is involved, shows the results pleased. "It is a strong Signal of how many companies have grown beyond themselves and their employees with flexible Work possible", emphasises DIHK President Eric Schweitzer. Where previously a family-conscious corporate culture maintained had been, had now both sides will benefit.
