How Do Working Moms Affect Child Development

Working Women Make Good Moms, Too

Moms who go back to the daily grind before their kids turn three won't see their children doing worse in terms of academics and behavior, according to a review of research spanning 50 years. That's great to hear, because it's one less thing mothers have to worry about when they return to work; their children will turn out fine, and maybe do even better in some cases. In fact, children of working moms who return to work before they are three years of age were rated by their teachers as higher achievers than their peers.

The results of these findings disprove the belief that a woman has to choose between a corner office and a happy home life, and I'm sure these CEO moms will be relieved to hear that. Actually, it seems like most of them already know that. "If you can compartmentalize, you can focus," Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz tells the WSJ about raising kids and juggling work. "You plan not to have guilt."
