Analysts at the Working Mother Research Institute would love more money but are desperate for more time.

When the analysts at the institute, an arm of Working Mother Media, New York, asked women what kind of help they'd like from their employers, 81% rated the flexibility to take time off during work as important or very important, and that wish ranked first in terms of importance. A similar wish -- that employers would let the caregivers change their work schedules -- ranked fourth, with a 71% importance rating.
