College-Educated Mothers Spend More Time With Their Children

Apr 24, 2014

College-educated mothers spend more time with their children than less-educated mothers

I found this an interesting study to share.  Studies show that college-educated mothers spent 67 more minutes in total care time with their children aged 0 to 2 compared to mothers with only a high school diploma. For children aged 3 to 5, the total care time increase was 21 more minutes and 22 minutes more for children aged 6 to 13. College-educated mothers spent 42 percent more time in basic care and 94 percent more time in play compared to mothers with a high school education. Highly educated mothers also invested 130 percent more time in management activities when their children were 6 to 13 years of age compared to mothers with a high school education.
