You probably remember your mom being a little more freewheeling about child safety than today's young parents are. Perhaps you roamed aimlessly around the neighborhood until dinner, or rode in a not-so-secure carseat (or, if you were really lucky, a "travel platform").

But new parents from a generation or two ago had nothing on the daring London moms of the 1930s: They literally hung their babies out the window.

Effects of Television on Child Development [Infographic] Share this post: It is no secret that 21st century children are watching massive amounts of television. Depending on what the particular child is watching on TV, there can be positive and negative effects of television exposure in regards to child development.

In the winding path my career has taken, I have spent substantial time both in and out of the workplace since my children were born. As a result, I am constantly at war with myself and have a hard time “picking sides” in the Working Mom vs. SAHM debates. So instead of taking a side, I offer seven non-negotiable truths I’ve revealed from my time moving across the battle lines. 1. All working moms “have” to work. Anyone, I repeat ANYONE who spends the greater part of their waking hours doing a job that takes them away from their kids HAS to work. Some people work to pay the electric bill, some people work to afford private school, some people work in an effort to break glass ceilings and kill the patriarch, some people work to preserve their sanity. 2.
