A large majority of dads think it's best for kids if moms don't work full-time, and almost 40% of them believe moms shouldn't work outside the home at all, according to a report released Thursday.

The study, by the Pew Research Center, found that moms have very different ideas of how much they should work. Close to 40% want to work full-time.

The researchers apparently did not ask how much dads should work.
