How many times have you, as a working mum, been told you’re ‘missing out’ on your little one’s childhood?
Mums who work give their kids some long-lasting positive benefits
An analysis published by the American Psychological Association discovered that children raised by working mums had no behavioural, social or learning issues. If anything, they were more likely to have academic success!
Children of working mums become happy adults
In another study published in the journal Work, Employment, and Society, more than 100,000 men and women across 29 countries were analysed by experts to determine if there was an impact on them by having a working mum.
The research showed no significant associations between whether an adult was happy and their mum stayed at home or went to work.
This comes after another study found that children in childcare have ‘better social and emotional skills’.
