I saw all the stories pop up about a recent study showing that kids of working moms are more likely to have unhealthy habits. But I ignored them, because blah blah blah, it’s just one more damn typical media story that heaps guilt on working moms for no good reason. DON’T NEED IT, PEOPLE!
Then I was pleasantly surprised by a roundtable discussion of the study, led by Juju Chang on Good Morning America this weekend. Four intelligent, professional working moms have the chance to chime in on the study’s results, with Juju (a working mom of three) as moderator. They didn’t have any earth-shattering conclusions (basically, they called BS on the study), but I appreciated the way GMA treated the topic and the opportunity for real moms to have their say.
