This chapter outlines fathers' issues in harmonizing work and family needs and expectations. Using the metaphor of musical harmony as a paradigm for working fathers, it explores the significance of work for fathers in their role as parents and the frequent conflicts that occur between work and family contexts. Suggestions for dealing with work-family conflicts are offered, such as limiting work time as possible, bundling activities, staying in touch from a distance, and using flexible work options. 16 references.
