Do working moms put their kids at risk? Today on The Morning Zone!
The children of mothers who work outside the home are no more likely to experience social or emotional problems during their early years than kids of stay-at-home moms, according to a new study by English researchers.
“No detrimental effects of maternal employment in the early years were seen,” concluded the authors of the study of 12,000 children, which was published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.
The study echoed findings from another recent study, by scientists at the National Bureau of Economic Research. It showed that mothers’ “quality of parenting” was not related to whether mom worked outside the home.
