New study shows more moms are bringing home the bacon.
She may not know the inner workings of a furnace or A/C unit, but a new report says that the working mom is doing just fine without that knowledge. We live in a fast paced world, and no one knows this better than the modern day superhero: the working mom. According to a new report from the Pew Research Center, a record number of American women are now the primary breadwinners in their families.
The report says, mothers are keeping roofs over heads and food on the table in 40 percent of households with children. This is a drastic change from 11 percent during the time of June Cleaver in the 1960’s. Let’s put it this way, now 13.7 million U.S, households with children under the age of 18 now have mothers who are the main breadwinners.
To everyone who doubts the work and dedication it takes to be a mom with a career, steer clear and never say these five things to a working mother:
- I thought your husband was doing well. Why can’t you afford to stay at home?
- You’re so lucky, I wish I had some time away from my children.
- Well I would just miss my children too much to be gone every day.
- Why did you have kids if you’re going to let someone else raise them?
- You look exhausted.
Get it? Got it? Good. Keep it up ladies! But we’ve got to ask, how does she do it?
