Report 'blames divorce' on working mothers

A new report has suggested that working mothers are to blame for the divorce rate.

The Good Childhood Inquiry was commissioned by The Children's Society and launched in September 2006 and it claims to be the UK's first independent national inquiry into childhood.

In the report, endorsed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, it is claimed that children are a victim of their parent's search for success.

"Their children are cared for by someone other than their parents," it says, adding that a second change affecting children is the increasing number of broken homes.

The report furthered: "Women's new economic independence contributes to this rise: it has made women much less dependent on their male partners as has the advent of the welfare state."

As a result of the increasing numbers of family break-ups, around one-third of 16-year-olds live apart from their biological father, it was claimed.
