A report from Census.Gov highlighted the childcare crisis gripping the U.S. due to Covid-19.

Listen to this:

“Women ages 25-44 are almost three times as likely as men to not be working due to childcare demands.”

This is a HUGE problem.

And likely to affect working moms and dads for the foreseeable future.

What’s more is:

  • There’s been limited options for childcare during the pandemic
  • Working moms have carried the heaviest burden
  • Parents of young kids have had to juggle demands differently than everybody else

A related report on the effects of labor shocks during the Pandemic said the following (which blew our minds):

“There was no effect on working fathers or working women without school age children.”


If You’re In This Group You’re Not Alone

Bottom line: The pandemic has been TOUGH on working parents, and especially Moms. So if you’ve been feeling like this last year has been a struggle, whether financially or emotionally, it’s not all in your head and you are not alone.

If you’re a working parent, how has Covid-19 affected you?
