Being a mother, but also having the need to work, can be a very daunting task indeed. Many mothers are forced with the decisions of how best to provide for their child or children, while not depriving them of any emotional support. As this study shows, 2 of the mother's are in steady relationships, while the third is a single parent. For appearance sake, the mothers in relationships as well as the single one appear to have one goal in mind. That is, raising their child the best they can.
The first mother is a married woman. Her daughter is still very young, and her husband works, so that proves to be beneficial for her at this time. As she points out, she does plan to go back to work soon. She already has a foundation set with the local preschool when it comes to future employment. She is married, which definitely can provide a sense of stability both emotionally and financially for herself and her daughter. She says that she will put her daughter in daycare when she is 2, recognizing that daycare of a valuable experience for a child to have, when done correctly and responsibly.
