Mothers & Employment: Fresh Perspectives from Grown Children of Working Mothers
Although a majority of moms are employed during their childrearing years, many of us still experience a nagging concern that our children some day will look back on their childhood and feel short-changed. But a recent study by business leader and mother Pam Lenehan shines light on the overwhelmingly positive views of adult children reflecting on their moms’ work and the impact it had on their development. Pam presents these findings in her book, My Mother, My Mentor: What Grown Children of Working Mothers Want You to Know, the springboard for a lively and personal discussion with Marti & Erin in this week’s Mom Enough show.
What has your experience been with motherhood and employment, both in your childhood and as a parent? What do you think about the positive effects of being working mothers as described by participants in Pam Lenehan’s study?
