Nowadays, women are working side by side with men in all fields. A couple of years ago, women were contented with performing their job only as a mother, but that is no longer the case. Women also want to actively participate in the affairs of the state and contribute to the economy. This trend is more prevalent in Western countries where women are not willing to give up their jobs even after becoming mothers. The attraction of money for some couples is just too much due to which mothers continue working in their respective profession.
Being a working mum can be a challenge. You miss your kids and you worry constantly that whoever is caring for them will do as good of a job as you would. This is so common today though, it is a reality for many women. It can be very difficult to make ends meet on one salary alone.
The cost of everything has gone up and continues to rise. Being a working mum is nothing to be ashamed of though. I know many women who felt shame for leaving their kids with anyone else. But if it must be done it must be done. You should be proud to provide a better future for your kids.
As a mother, I always want my son to grow as a responsible and confident person. I want him to be himself and excel on the things that he really enjoys doing. In order to help him become a good person, I praise him whenever he does good things. I believe that giving our children some positive praises on the things that he does well can boost his confidence.
Here are some of the instances when I praise my son:
- I always give him give comment every time he does something good or he shows a positive behaviour.
When the global recession hit us, I never let my son feel its effect, although I told him that we should be wiser with our spending. There was financial stress but I did not tell him how his dad and I go through everything because I don’t want to scare him or let him feel the pressure. Besides, he is just a kid and so there is no point of telling him all these financial troubles happening worldwide.
There are lots of famous working mothers worldwide but there is one person whom I look up to as my role model – the US First Lady, Michelle Obama. Why do I consider her as my inspiration? You see, Michelle Obama is the wife of the US president and she too has some duties to attend to. She has her own set of public dealings and engagements as she handles several organizations and non-profit organizations. In fact, she is directly involved in helping housewives, especially those who are married to military personnel. With all the things she does, I really admire the way she takes care of her family, particularly her daughters.
When you decided to work for your family especially for the kids, the issue on how to meet their everyday needs for nurturing, attention and education becomes the usual question. In addition to this, giving quality time for them becomes more complicated. Due to your demanding work schedule, it is no wonder that your commitments for your family are usually sacrificed.
Morning school struggle is the most difficult times of the day for many working mums. It is because while preparing your kids for the school you also have to prepare yourself for your work. Besides, you need to accomplish your duties at home and with your kids as early as you can so you can proceed to your work on time. In short, you are always on the rush!
For some of us losing weight is something that is easy although many people find it difficult to do. It is no wonder why many of them invest their money to enrol on a weight loss program.
Usually when you are at the gym, you would have to spend up an hour doing biking exercise or an hour and ten minutes in lifting weights in order to sweat off. Or you can also do an hour of ballroom dancing or half an hour of football as an alternative.
