Abstract

It has been commonly held that ‘children suffer if their mother goes out to work’. This research uses several studies – large scale longitudinal data – to look at the development of children whose mothers were employed when those children were very young. IOE Research Briefings are short descriptions of significant research findings, based on the wide range of projects carried out by IOE researchers.
