How is child development impacted by having a stay-at-home mom as opposed to a working mom?

How is child development impacted by having a stay-at-home mom as opposed to a working mom?

Complicated: In the early months/years family care will give the child more individual attention. Older toddlers/children can benefit from the social stimulation of daycare.

When parents are: Separated, each can control only what goes on in his/her own home. Other than increasing financial support to mom ; child for their own home and nurturing child-care, there is little you can do, unless you observe signs of reportable child abuse or neglect.
