I get the gears on a regular basis from my kids about me working. The most common complaint; “Mom, why do you have to work so much?”… After reading this study, I feel a little better about the situation!
Mothers with young kids should stop feeling guilty about working outside of the home. Children with working moms are less likely to have behavioral or emotional problems by age 5 than kids of stay at home moms, according to a British study.
In fact, girls with stay at home moms were twice as likely to have behavioral problems by age 5. “Working mothers should not feel guilty that this will have any impact on the social, emotional or behavioral development of their children,” says Dr. Anne McMunn of University College London.
