Study: Whether mom works or not, the kids are OK

Parents who worry they are forever damaging their children by dropping them off at day-care every morning can find some comfort in a recent study that looked at academic achievement and behavioral issues of children whose mothers work outside the home versus those with moms who stay home.

An analysis of 50 years of research found that kids of working mothers don't turn out to be much different than those with stay-at-home moms, at least when it comes to academic achievement and behavior issues.
