Mama Says Help!

In a recent research study from parenting site, American moms were asked what they think is the best thing about being a mom today. By a wide margin, they chose "Men expected to share in childcare responsibilities." (Read the whole study here). But moms also report that they find work-family balance their most challenging issue as a mom.

These results both reflect the changing nature of the American family - moms still find it hard to effectively balance the demands of home and work, and they are grateful for those involved dads who make it easier for the entire family to navigate this tricky topic. NFI came across many of the same themes in our recent Mama Says survey - sounds like moms are telling us something!
