Oh heavens no! Not at all a bad mother...is that even what people say anymore?? Moms work all the time!! You’re not gonna be the first.... There is no research out there that shows working parents somehow hurt kids. But there IS proven research that says kids with working mothers actually have benefits when they become adults. (Harvard Business Review, perhaps? Can’t recall...) Girls with working moms are more likely to hold management positions. And boys with working moms are more helpful in their own household as adults.
