I think a working mother is just trying to provide a living to support herself and her child, I think that is a noble thing to do and benefits society, a working mother is someone not depending on Government assisstance to get by and is paying taxes on her salary.
No, working mothers aren't detrimental to society. In fact, a working mother who supports her family and cares for her child is a good role model for the next generation. She will teach her children the importance of being responsible and will help them to develop a good work ethic.
No, working mothers are not detrimental to society. Working mothers are increasing in number, in many cases because families are unable to survive on a single income. Each case is specific and unique, and children need to be given adequate nurture and support, but the problem is not working mothers, it is a deeper societal issue.
I don't think society benefits when 50% of the population is expected to stay at home and not work. Surely families and society in general benefits when everyone is encouraged to have a satisfying career and a fulfilling life. Working mothers will pass on that fulfillment and self-worth to their children of both sexes.
