Devenir et être parent en situation de précarité

Abstract : Precarity is a condition that has consequences when becoming or being a parent. Usually, it is the adverse consequences that are emphasized. The category of “precarity” is often used to pass judgement, rather than to understand or explain. For this reason, we conducted a literature review. After defining the terms “precarity” and “parenting,” we put forward an examination of parental identity, and the specific consequences of precarity on the process of parenting: becoming a parent as a sensitive life-stage, a lesser engagement in parenting, stereotypes of gender and parenting styles, and a symbolic precarity that compounds economic precarity. Finally, we explore potential avenues for intervention to support parents who may be marginalized by this socially ascribed label, and we make recommendations for areas of future research.
