A working woman is no less capable than a woman who doesn’t work, in fact, she also has that same capacity and ability to work and manage houses and all the work. They not only for their needs or satisfaction or only for herself but she works thinking about other factors like support to the family, increase in her productivity rather than being idle.
Some people still think that a “good mother” is one who gives up work to stay home with her children. However, no scientific evidence says children are harmed when their mothers work. A child’s development is also influenced by other things too like family’s thinking, how they feel and act when mothers work, emotional factors, mental factors. So, whether mother works and child development is affected is no related terms.
A mother who successfully manages both an outside job and parenthood provides a role model for her child. And in families where the father is supportive and helps in household and other chores, these are positive outcomes and examples which should be given importance and should learn from them. Even she is working, she doesn’t miss out or back on her duties as a mother and shaping a child’s development. There’s a quote given by Arlie Russell Hochschild, which can relate, “ Most women work one shift at the office or factory and a second shift at home”.
