Most people are working from home due to the coronavirus epidemic. In such a recent survey, it has been found that during work from home, there is an increase in the happiness of those working people who are guardians of young children. At the same time, no significant change has been seen in the happiness of couples without children. Research by the Rutgers Business School has found that both parents feel better due to spending more time with children. 

In a research conducted by Rutgers University, the father who is helping to take care of the children , the researchers said that working parents are not only able to work more from home but also feel good because of spending time with children. According to the researchers, the happiness of both the parents is increasing due to fathers taking care of the children and helping in household chores. 

Women’s Productivity Increased –
Researcher Christina Durante said, “We found that the work productivity of working women is also increasing due to the fact that men contribute to household chores.” At the same time their work satisfaction is also increasing. 

Child Care

Domestic work-
Before the epidemic, only 11 per cent men used to help in household chores for five hours a day, but during the epidemic this number has reached 20 per cent. They are now helping women in cooking and cleaning.
