Children with working parents

Parental employment is extremely important in regards to the future of a child. It is directly linked to increases in family income, a decrease in poverty, and a higher likelihood of children having access to health care. When all parents in the household are working, access to quality child care, which influences children's overall development, becomes an important consideration and possible necessity for a family.
