A NEW survey reveals many mums are opting for a healthy family life instead of a career. Women are shifting from a “perfectionist” attitude and rate their family, spending time with friends and exercising as more important than their career, a survey suggests. The results of a national study of almost 2300 women, commissioned by parenting website Kidspot show three quarters of respondents aged between 18 and 65 believe family is the single most important thing in their life. Pursuing their career finished last in a list of priorities that included seeing friends, keeping fit, further study and community work.
