Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Time bind is a concept introduced by sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild in 1997 with the publication of her The Time Bind: When Work Becomes Home and Home Becomes Work. This concept refers to the blurring distinction between work and home social environments. Hochschild found in her research that although most working parents, particularly all mothers, said "family comes first," few of them considered adjusting their long hours, even when their workplaces offered flextime, paternity leave, telework or other "family friendly" policies. Her conclusion is that the roles of home and work had reversed: work has become more attractive, offering a sense of belonging, while home had grown more stressful, becoming a dreaded place with too many demands.
