Indian mothers give up their dreams for their children: Survey

Saturday May 11, 2013 06:37:37 PM, IANS

New Delhi: An overwhelming 77 percent of Indian mothers stopped pursuing their dreams after their first child was born, even though 68 percent said they still desired to chase their dreams, a survey has revealed.

"What Moms Want" was conducted by P&G Thank You on the occasion of Mother's Day, which is on May 12. It surveyed over 500 mothers in the age bracket of 25-45 years and over 600 children between 18 to 45 years in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Lucknow.

"A total of 73 percent of mothers in Delhi admitted that they stopped chasing their dreams after the birth of their child; the figure was the highest in Hyderabad at 94 percent," said the survey.

A whopping 91 percent of the mothers in Delhi said that they would like it if their children fulfilled their dreams. Again, this figure was the highest in Hyderabad at 100 percent, followed by Mumbai at 95 percent.

At 36 percent, which is the highest among all the other cities, mothers in Delhi admitted that they would like to have a career while being a mother.

As far as children were concerned, 90 percent said that they motivated their mother to pursue their dreams, and 95 percent of them said they would like their mothers to take better care of themselves.
