Facts About Working Mothers

Do Working Moms Raise Higher-Achieving Children?

Here's one less reason working moms have to feel guilty about heading to work each day. According to a review of 50 years of research, kids whose mamas worked when they were under the age of 3 were more likely to be rated as "higher-achieving" by their teachers when they were older. In addition to being a role model for young tots, working mothers tend to bring extra money into the home, which all adds up to being a positive influence on lil ones' lives. Remember that the next time your lil one asks why you have to go to work in the morning!

I wonder about this study. Did it include moms from all career levels, with the whole range of child-care options? Did it include a variety of schools rating the children?

I'm curious if the study's result had anything to do with the fact that some working parents put their kids in preschool early rather than just keeping them in day care. Are the children being educated earlier?
