Balancing Work with School and Training while Raising Young Children: A National Portrait of Young Parents, Their Schedules, and Children’s Care Arrangements

Research suggests a growing and significant number of parents both work and attend school. Many of them are young parents who face unique challenges as they raise children while still developing themselves and often lack resources, supports, and life experience. This report from the Urban Institute explores the prevalence of children born to young parents (ages 16 to 24), the characteristics of these children and their families, and the implications for child care when parents are working while also trying to advance their skills and education to get ahead in the labor market.
