It’s been said too often to women that working outside the home is bad for your kids. A new study dispels that myth about working moms, which means it’s time to stop shaming them (Well, it’s always been time to stop shaming working moms — but you know what we mean).

The study found kids who went to daycare performed 10% better socially, and another 10% better with everyday skills like movement and speech. Interactive activities and higher quantities of time spent with peers benefit a child’s development, researchers say.

“Those with a huge head-start are more advanced but, in the end, social and emotional development evens out for the average child,” David Carey, a child psychologist, said to the Irish Times.

In other words: Stop shaming other moms for their choices. Turns out kids in daycare do just fine.
