520    This book focuses on the time use of mothers of 
       preteenaged children in the United States from 2003 to 
       2006. We explore how mothers at the start of the twenty-
       first century are using their time in order to better 
       understand their lives, the lives of their partners, and 
       the lives of their children. Differences in the time 
       choices American mothers make will have important 
       implications for their own well-being and the well-being 
       of family members. The study of maternal time use is 
       hugely important because of the relationship between 
       quality caregiving and child well-being. Additionally, 
       employers looking for new labor pools are also affected by
       the time use choices of mothers of young children because 
       60 percent of American mothers with young children are 
       employed. The time choices of mothers in the United States
       also affect policymakers' thinking about things such as 
       educational policy, the role that taxes play in the 
       allocation of time between paid and unpaid activities, and
       possible expansion of publicly funded preschool -
