Mothers who work are happier and healthier
Work during the childhood of children can be good for mental and physical health of mothers. Is the conclusion of a study published in the Journal of Family Psychology.According to the survey, women who leave home to work after the birth of children tend to have better general health and fewer depressive symptoms.
Personal satisfaction: having a job, even part-time, promotes mental and physical health of women with small children
During the data collection were interviewed about 1,500 mothers in 10 different locations in the United States - 14% were single mothers. The period considered in the study was 10 years, starting shortly after birth. According to Cheryl Buehler, coordinator of the study and professor at the University of North Carolina, in all cases the final results favored the part-time work, compared to that full-time or no work. "But in many cases, a sense of well being of the mother had no difference between working part-time and day," says Cheryl.
Employed mothers have better health and fewer symptoms of depression than mothers who are housewives. Women who stay home often give the impression of a perfect lifestyle, with all the time in the world to care for children.
But it is not pointing to a study at the University of North Carolina. According to Mail Online, researchers interviewed 1364 mothers soon after birth of their children and followed them in over a decade.
In all cases had significant differences in maternal well-being, as the conflict between work and family or parenthood. According to the study, no differences in symptoms of depression or general health among mothers who worked part time and those who worked full time.
Future - According to research, study hints at the need for a further thought on such factors as employment status, schedule flexibility, work commitments and shifts. Thus, it would be ideal mothers walk into adult environments for a few hours and enjoy some level of job satisfaction - and some financial freedom. SITE:
