Debate in the mommy wars usually focuses on what kids lose out on if their mother works. But a major new study out of the Harvard Business School flips the question to ask what they gain. It turns out, quite a bit, according to the study. Some key takeaways:
- Daughters of women who work tend to get more education and are more likely to work in supervisory jobs and thus have higher incomes than women whose moms stay at home.
- Sons of women who work help out more with child care and housework.
