Moms’ Work-Life Balance By Generation

May 2, 2014

A survey of 2,163 moms and dads about the impact their generational status has on their own work life choices and satisfaction, released by the Working Mother Research Institute, found that Millennials are the happiest generation of parents reporting they have a secure and stable job (65%), are upbeat about their family finances (64%) and are most satisfied with their relationship with their spouse (71%). Commissioned to mark the 35th anniversary of Working Mother magazine, the “Working Mother Generations Report” was sponsored by SC Johnson.

In the survey, 73% of Millennial moms agreed that mothers and fathers should share daily household responsibilities. Gen X moms’ responses came in about the same, at 70%, and Boomer moms were 75%. But only 24% of Boomer moms, 27% of Gen X moms and 35% of Millennials said they were satisfied with how at-home tasks are divided between themselves and their spouse/partner.
