Good News for the Children of Working Mothers!
A study on 50,000 adults in 25 countries showed the daughters of working mothers did better in school, completed more years of education, exhibited less bad behavior, depression and anxiety, they were more likely to be employed and as a result, they were more likely to have supervisory roles and to earn more money.
For boys, there was not much change in school and later life. However, while growing up the boys of working mothers did more housework and childcare. As adults, they were more likely to marry working women.
About three out of four American mothers work.
