This paper examines domain-specific variations in child care and parenting arrangements in a community-defined sample of urban families. Children lived in a variety of family types; parenting systems ranged from parenting alone to multiple caregivers. The residential status of additional caregivers varied. The effects of family type, income, and child gender on the likelihood of caregivers sharing child care and parenting activities varied by type of activity.
