Are we good parents?
As part of a Pew Research study released Thursday researchers asked parents to rate how good a job they are doing. The outcome: We've decided we're pretty good at raising our kids.
The women who are hardest on themselves are full-time working moms. (Would you expect any different?) Just 10 percent of mothers working full -time give themselves the highest rating(10) and 18 percent give themselves the next highest mark(9).
At-home moms give themselves much higher scores: nearly three-in-ten(28 percent) give themselves the highest mark(10) and another 15 percent put themselves at 9.
I found it slightly surprising though that mothers see themselves in a better light than fathers. Just 26 percent of dads give themselves one of the two highest marks -- most put themselves at a 7 or 8. Why is this? Dads let me hear from you.
