Study: Working Moms Finding Time for Children

A new study finds that somehow, working mothers are spending the same amount of time with their children as stay-at-home moms did in the 1970s. They're giving up sleep, housework and time with the spouse. Suzanne Bianchi, a demographer at the University of Maryland, tells Renee Montagne about the study. She is the author of the book Changing Rhythms of American Family Life.
