The Mother Who Works Outside the Home.
Olds, Sally Wendkos
Issues confronting the working mother are explored, including child care, career counseling, family relationships, the one-parent family, and the troubled child. Readers are told that there are almost no constant differences found between the children of employed and nonemployed mothers. Children develop best when the mother herself is satisfied with what she does, whether she's staying at home or working. Working mothers are encouraged not to feel guilty about spending less time with their children than their stay-at-home counterparts, whether they need to work or not. Quality, rather than quantity of maternal child care is stressed. Tips are offered to help the employed mother organize her life more easily and satisfactorily. Additional sources of help for working mothers such as agencies, organizations, and books of special interest are mentioned. (BRT)
