TempleTouch Thermometers - When Kids Get Sick, What’s a Working Mom to Do

Holly Springs, NC -- (SBWire) -- 10/12/2010 -- Background:

A recent survey of 324 mothers who work full-time (and are also “mommy bloggers”) was conducted in September 2010 by TempleTouch™ thermometers.

The subject of the survey was to find out what working mothers do about their jobs when their children become sick.

Key Findings:

• In this economy, working mothers feel more pressure to go to work rather than stay home with their sick children

• 60% of working moms are given less than seven sick days per year by their employer – and 56% of working moms don’t use those days for themselves. Instead, they stay home to take care of sick kids.

• Even though, 43% of working moms are never allowed to take those days to care for children.

• So, what’s a working mom do when the kids are sick? 33% have pretended to be sick themselves in order to stay home; 22% have faked an illness; 34% have sent their child to school anyway; and more than 60% call on a friend or relative to take care of the kids

• 60% of working moms consider their workplace family friendly

• 68% of working moms have never heard of “sick child day care”, a new type of day care operation popping up around the country where staff cares for sick children.
