What I’m going to do this morning is to talk about an analysis of working mothers

Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase of labor force particularly for woman and children

Moreover, there are more people working outside traditional Monday to Friday from 9 to 5 pattern

This can lead to affects on them and also their children

As you can see from the statistic from mental health foundation
“ many more woman report unhappiness than men”

My presentation will be divided into 4 parts
Firstly I will talk about changing in employment trends
Secondly I will talk about the impact on children development and social outcome
Next I will talk about well being of mother
Lastly Mrs. Obama on work life balance My presentation will last about 10 minutes
If you have any question I will be happy to answer in the end of presentation

Let’s begin with Changing employment trends

At the present time, most mothers in United States are employed
This is not true for mothers of school age children as it has been for two decade but it is also true for mothers of infants less than one year old

From the chart , it can be clearly seen that the steady rise in mother with children over the year is clearly illustrated as it is rare in 194o but become modal in 1996

3. A few earlier studies found that sons of employ mother show lower school performance and lower IQ score
4. Previous research has also found some social adjustment difference between children with employed and non-employed mother but with less consistency. Daughter of employed mother have been found to be more independent particularly in interaction with friend in a school.
5. There is one more result from previous research, which was also found in this study. Children of employ mother have less traditional gender role attitude such as men could do the female activities.

Move on to another topic well-being of mother
The second aspect of family life that is often seen as linking the mother’s employment status to effects on child is the mother sense of well-being

Numerous study found that employment show a positive health advantage.
Lower score on measure of depressive mood
Higher score on positive spirit

Let’s move on to the last topic Mrs.Obama on work life balance
