Mothers can worry about a plethora of things, such as the health of their children, what school to send them to and so on. A new study shows, however, that the top woe that mothers have is work outside the home.
The research, conducted by a recruiting firm in the UK, showed that half of mothers are kept awake at night because of worries about their career. Researchers surveyed 1,500 women and found that about half reported being kept awake at night because they were worried about their job. The study indicated that one of the top specific concerns was balancing work life with family time.
