Posted by Vishva News Reporter on April 2, 2010

 


The Institute of Child Health study of
more than 12,500 five-year-olds published
in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, UK
found:

......IN UK About 60% of women with
children aged five or younger are working....


stUDY  RESULT:
Children whose mothers work
are less likely to lead healthy lives than those
with "stay at home" mothers,


The children whose mothers had a flexible working pattern
 did have healthier lifestyles but
when other factors were taken into account
there was little evidence that these children behaved more healthily.




"The stress and guilt associated with being a working mum
 is something we are all too well aware of.
This report adds to that guilt.
With many more mums having no choice
but to work these days
and with government policy actively encouraging it,
it is difficult to know how mums can do better"

........A vEDik TAKE AS AN ANTI-DOTE FOR
TODAY'S NEWS STORY'S POTENTIAL BREWING
FOR NON-HEALTH OF CHILDREN......

 
PVAF has published many knowledge-based news story about how family life and quality of life and healthy well-being in general .....is forecast to diminish.... as humanity pursues wealth attainment as life primary goal...a goal that is to be attained at any cost and especially the goal attainment without the very life-vital consideration of work/life balances of both parents in a family....

In the corpus of sciences of life and creation called
vED, the 18 puraaAN texts forecasts the above negative life impact in the vEDik time era called kli-yug the current humanity has been living in for about 5111 years and still will live till the 432,000-year kli-yug era span is completed...The negative life impacts will keep on increasing as kli-yug evolves with its inherent environment of not living daily and various life phases from birth to death as ordained by the rules and regulations of DHARm....Living by DHARm empowers one to live one's life-journey as per Creator's life design and maintenance specifications...and when these specifications are not met then life starts to fall apart and becomes dysfunctional and/or at the worst un-functional of body, emotional, intellectual and spiritual life operating systems.....For the first 36,000 years the kli-yug era will be in its transitional state from the preceding D'vaapr-yug in which 75-50 percent of the humanity would have lived life by DHARm...At the start of kli-yug only 75 percent of the humanity would live by DHARm...and as kli-yug progresses towards its end majority of the humanity would be living without DHARm and thus with the lifestyle of me-world of narcissism leading to ultimately to a family and nation living in  anarchy....(please click on the yellow-hilited words to learn about narcissism and anarchy)

The current humanity in 5110th year of kli-yug still has a good chance to live by
DHARm with a minority of 25 percent...but once the transition period of 36,000 years is completed then this 25 percent will start diminishing...in the same way as today's news story research is showing happening in UK which can be taken as a sample which applies to all the industrialized countries to day and will be applying to all the nations which are becoming industrialized on a global scale... 

The above three paras is for knowledge to empower humanity for a happier tomorrow than today simply by the power of
True Knowledge to live a life as per Creator's design and operating manual included in vED life sciences.....This knowledge sharing is from Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from his daily vED life sciences study to lay a foundation for using the evolving current sciences to live by vED life sciences and DHARm rules and regulations for living the life-journey with more of suKH (happiness and joy leading to supreme bliss) than DuKH (pain and suffering)...

YOU have any questions and/or wish to learn more about vED life sciences and science of DHARm therein  then please visit the many knowledge sharing articles in the AASHRAM NEWS ARCHIVE and other vED knowledge sharing web pages on this PVAF website...and/or contact PVAF by clicking here....

......IN UK About 60% of women
with children aged five or younger are working....

Children whose mothers work
are less likely to lead healthy lives than those
with "stay at home" mothers,

says....
The Institute of Child Health study of more than 12,500 five-year-old.


(From: BBC NEWS: Monday, 28 September 2009)


The Institute of Child Health study of more than 12,500 five-year-olds found those with working mothers less active and more likely to eat unhealthy food.

Other experts said more work was needed to see if the results applied to other age groups.

The study is in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

About 60% of mothers with children aged up to five are estimated to be in work.

STUDY Results

The mothers were asked about the hours they worked and their children's diet, exercise levels and sedentary activities.

A third of the mothers had not worked since the birth of their child, but the mothers who were employed were spending an average of 21 hours a week at work.

They took into account factors likely to influence the results, such as the mothers' level of education and socioeconomic circumstances.

They found that five-year-olds whose mothers worked part-time or full-time were more likely to primarily consume sweetened drinks between meals.

They used their computers or watched television for at least two hours a day compared to the children of "stay at home" mothers who spent less than two hours on these activities.

They were also more likely to be driven to school compared to the children of "stay at home" mothers who tended to walk or cycle.

The children whose mothers had a flexible working pattern did have healthier lifestyles but when other factors were taken into account the researchers said there was little evidence that these children behaved more healthily.

'Time constraints'

Debbie Bird: "'Being a working mum is very challenging".

Professor Catherine Law, who led the study, said they had not looked at fathers in this study because fathers employment levels had not changed whereas the numbers of working mothers had increased dramatically.




She said: "For many families the only parent or both parents will be working.

"Time constraints may limit parents' capacity to provide their children with healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity.

"Our results do not imply that mothers should not work.

"Rather they highlight the need for policies and programmes to help support parents."

The same children took part in an earlier study by the Institute of Child Health (ICH) which found that those with working mothers were more likely to be obese or overweight by the age of three.

In the latest study, many of the five-year-olds were engaging in health behaviours likely to promote excess weight gain: 37% were mainly eating crisps and sweets between meals, 41% were consuming sweetened drinks and 61% used the television or a computer at least two hours daily.

'Controversial research'

Glenys Jones, nutritionist with the Medical Research Council Human Nutrition Research, said the study was interesting because of limited research so far on the impact of maternal employment on child health choices.

"More work is needed to take into account factors such as how related health behaviours are affected and if the age of the child alters the relationships observed."

Sally Russell, a spokesman for Netmums, said: "The stress and guilt associated with being a working mum is something we are all too well aware of. This report adds to that guilt.

"With many more mums having no choice but to work these days and with government policy actively encouraging it, it is difficult to know how mums can do better. "

A Department of Health spokesman said: "Our Change4Life movement is already helping over 370,000 families eat well, move more and live longer by helping them to understand the harm that fat and added sugar can cause to children's health, and offering them simple yet effective ways to make changes to their diet and increase their activity levels."

.....KNOW WHAT A MOTHER SHOULD BE AND IS
NOW A DAYS IN INDUSTRIALIZED COMMUNITIES.....

The term mother is often given to a woman other than the biological parent, especially if she who fulfills the main social role in raising the child. A mother is a biological and/or social female parent of an offspring. Because of the complexity and differences of a mothers' social, cultural, and religious definitions and roles, it is challenging to define a mother to suit a universally accepted definition.

Nearly all world religions define tasks or roles for mothers through either religious law or through the deification or glorification of mothers who served in substantial religious events. There are many examples of religious law relating to mothers and women.


Mothers have historically fulfilled the primary role in raising children, but since the late 20th century, the role of the father in child care has been given greater prominence and social acceptance in some Western countries.......

.......AND NOW LEARN ABOUT
THE SOCIOLOGY OF MOTHERHOOD.....

The sociology of motherhood is a sub branch of sociology which studies gender role in society, with particular reference to the parental role of the mother.

In many cultures, especially traditional western, a mother is usually the wife in a married couple. Her role in the family is celebrated on Mother's Day.

However, this limited role has increasingly been called into question. Both feminist and masculist authors have decried such predetermined roles as unjust. A nascent father's rights movement seeks to increase the legal standing of fathers in everything from child-custody cases to the institution of paid paternity leave or family leave.
