A recent study revealed the moms are the breadwinners in 40% of households. I feel it's great that women are making more and more moms are the breadwinners in families. But I hope it's not because more men have recently been laid off due to employers who felt that they could get away with paying women less. There is still a wage gap that I'd like to see disappear.
The study showed that for married breadwinning moms, their families benefitted from a more comfortable lifestyle but made their marriages/family happiness more challenging. That is a problem and one I felt compelled to help with on a recent CNN appearance on the topic.
In case you missed it, WATCH THE CNN SEGMENT HERE and read on for my best advice for working moms:
The CNN anchor focused on the public opinion of the increasing mom-breadwinner trend. I say don't worry what others think! Always follow your dreams and do what makes you happy. I've found that is the best formula for having a happy family.
The phrase "working mother" is redundant. ~Jane Sellman
