The decision between remaining a stay-home mother or a working women is extremely convoluted for Pakistani mothers. There are the contentions in support and against the occupation of moms. The supporters of mothers’ job are of the feeling that working mothers assemble fearlessness, social cognizance and feeling of commitment, move viciously and parcel of monetary advantages. Subsequently, it is not mischievous for a mother to have a vocation yet it is more likely than not the cheering action for her children. The current study intends to investigate the effects of mothers’ work on the self- confidence of children. For this a sample of 175 students was randomly selected from different colleges of Rawalpindi. Data were collected personally by the researcher. Random sampling technique was used to collect data for the study. It was found that the trend of mothers’ employment is increasing day by day. The self- confidence level of the children of mothers staying at home and working do not have any significant difference. The findings of the study recommended that the self-confidence level of the children of non-working women can be increased by training workshops, seminars and by providing them the opportunities to share their vision about professional and personal life as well.
