All moms have the same worry:what will happen with their baby when they return back to work. The baby is used to stay with her all day long and it must be very hard for both the baby and his mother to stay apart the whole working day. However, according to a recent research the baby won’t be suffering because of this separation.
The study showed that even though recent moms go back to work after the birth of their baby, the kid’s health and general wellbeing won’t be affected. Maybe this result will be found as very comfortable by women all over the world how are worried with the fact that returning to work can affect the child’s normal development.
According to a research conducted, “The good news is that we can see no adverse effects,” declared one of the researchers. And although this is not a new problem, in fact being an issue that has preoccupied researchers in many other studies, this research brings something new. ”This research is unique because the question we have always asked in the past has been: ‘If everything else remains constant, what is the effect of a mum going off to work?’ But of course everything else doesn’t stay constant, so it’s an artificial way of looking at things.” “Family relationships, family income, the mental health of the mother all change when a mother is working and so what we did was to look at the full impact, taking all of these things into account,” Jessica from London School of Economics said for the Daily Mail. But, what is new and useful is that there are no side effects of this situation felt by the child whose mom is going to work.
But, as specialists said, it is not all about the fact that the mother works or not. The way parents understand in general the kid’s needs is a vital element for his development. “This is especially good news for US mothers, who typically go back to work after three months because of the lack of maternity leave, but it equally will apply to the typical British family,” one of the specialists mentioned.
So, it seems that the most appropriate thing to do when you have a baby is to opt for a part time job, with 30 hours working time a week. This way your income won’t suffer very much and you will still have enough time to spend with your recently born child. However, today many women have to work and it is not a choice for them. The results of the study will probably be very appreciated by working women all over the world, which will go to work easier knowing that their kids won’t suffer and won’t experience long time consequences.
