Henry James once defined life as that predicament which precedes death, and certainly nobody owes you a debt of honor or gratitude for getting him into that predicament. But a child does owe his father a debt, if Dad, having gotten him into this peck of trouble, takes off his coat and buckles down to the job of showing his son how best to crash through it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland


Do you think the rules/laws are applied to Fathers more stringently as compared to Mothers?

Single mums spend less time with kids? PDF Print E-mail
(0 Votes)
Written by ANI   

A new study has found that single mothers spend less time with their children than their married counterparts. Sarah Kendig and Suzanne Bianchi from the University of Maryland examined differences in the amount and type of time that single, cohabiting, and married mothers spend with their children. They found that co-habiting and married mothers spend similar amounts of time caring for their children, while single mothers spend less time with their children.

However, if single mothers had the same level of education and employment as married mothers, they would spend the same amount of time with their children too.

The reason why single mothers spend less time is they have higher employment rates — and employed mothers spend less time caring for their children than mothers who are not employed. “This suggests that if we want to equalise maternal investments in time with children, we could do so by encouraging policies that focus on improving educational and employment opportunities for single mothers,” the authors conclude.
