This work examines how the cultural norm of performing family obligations influences Latinos’ and Asians’ time management. Undergraduates listed tasks they planned to accomplish in a month; four weeks later they noted which were completed. As anticipated, Latinos and Asians, relative to their classmates, listed and completed more family-related tasks.
