preliminary results of a groundbreaking study found that the daughters
of employed mothers often perform better in their eventual careers than
the daughters of stay-at-home moms.
Now the full study
has been released, and it brings even more good news for the children of
working moms: They wind up just as happy in adulthood as the children
of moms who stayed home.
School Professor Kathleen McGinn hopes the findings bring a big sigh of
relief for guilt-ridden mothers who either have to hold down a job to
make ends meet or simply choose to work outside the home while raising
“People still have
this belief that when moms are employed, it’s somehow detrimental to
their children,” says McGinn, the Cahners-Rabb Professor of Business
Administration. “So our finding that maternal employment doesn’t affect
kids’ happiness in adulthood is really important.”
“As we gradually understand that our children aren’t suffering, I hope the guilt will go away”
This isn’t about
raising happier kids, she continues. “When women choose to work, it’s a
financial and personal choice.
Women should make that choice based on
whether they want or need to work, not based on whether they are harming
their children—because they are not.”
