Faye J Crosby Quote: The traditional American husband and father had the responsibilities-and the privileges-of playing the role of primary provider. Sharing that role is not easy.

Quotes about Faye J Crosby: Juggling produces both practical and psychological benefits.... A woman's involvement in one role can enhance her functioning in another.

And employment outside the home can contribute in substantial, practical ways to how one works within the home, as a spouse and as a parent.

Sayings about Faye J Crosby: Just as we need to encourage women to test life's many options, we need to acknowledge real limits of energy and resources. It would be pointless and cruel to prescribe role combination for every woman at each moment of her life. Life has its seasons. There are moments when a woman ought to invest emotionally in many different roles, and other moments when she may need to conserve her psychological energies.
