Never Criticize Working Moms

The BBC reports, in Working mothers’ children unfit, a study concluding that “Children whose mothers work are less likely to lead healthy lives than those with ‘stay at home’ mothers. … The Institute of Child Health study of more than 12,500 five-year-olds found those with working mothers less active and more likely to eat unhealthy food.”

As Gil Guillory told me,

This could easily be presented with a positive spin: children of stay-at-home moms benefit from better eating and exercise habits. Instead, insanity reigns:

“Our results do not imply that mothers should not work.
“Rather they highlight the need for policies and programmes to help support parents”
