Single Moms with This Arrangement Likely to Earn More: Study

A recent study from best-selling author Emma Johnson found a unique pro to single moms who have a 50/50 schedule with their co-parent: they are more likely to earn more money!

Johnson conducted the Single Mom Income and Time-Sharing Survey with 2,279 single moms to discover if there is a correlation between parental time sharing, income and better overall wellbeing. Released on Jan. 11, the study demonstrated a strong relationship between income and a single mother’s parenting time.

Johnson found that mothers with a 50/50 parenting schedules are 54 percent more likely to earn at least $100,000 annually, compared to mothers who have their children with them most of the time. More so, those with a 50/50 schedule are more than three times as likely to earn more than $100,000 than a single mom with 100 percent of time responsibility.

As far as well being, the survey also found that the 50/50 schedule helped 34 percent more moms to feel “awesome and proud,” compared with moms who are 100 percent responsible for their kids.
