To all the single ladies who are working so hard at work and at home, you know you do a great job juggling many responsibilities. The study in this month's Journal of Marriage and Family is just more proof.

Even researchers were surprised that these women managed to pull it off so well, often working long hours with little help, yet devoting almost as much time to their children as married women do.

The lead researchers from the University of Maryland say single moms know how precious time with their kids is, and they make their kids a huge focus of their energy--just like all moms do.
