More Time With Mom Has Little to No Effect on Children’s Well-Being » Sociological Images | Herstory | Scoop.it

The driving force behind all this focused time is the idea that it’s good for kids. That’s why parents often feel guilty if they can’t find the time or even go so far as to quit their full-time jobs to make more time.

This assumption, however, isn’t bearing out in the science, at least not for mothers’ time.

Greg Russak's curator insight, January 19, 2014 1:12 AM

My mom was a stay-at-home, as was the mother of my children for many years. It required sacrifice, but only in an economic sense. Not at all to diminish working mothers, either by choice or by necessity, but  what is a stay-at-home mom worth? She's priceless, and I think we ought to live in the world's wealthiest society constructed to acknowledge that and to allow more women to be stay-at-home moms.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, March 22, 2014 4:34 PM

A stay-at-home mom job is not worth much and it is worth less than it was 5 years ago.

An opinionated woman obsessed with objects, entertained by ephemera, intrigued by researching, fascinated by culture & addicted to writing. The wind says my name; doesn't put an @ in front of it, so maybe you don't notice. http://www.kitsch-slapped.com
