Being a working mum is not an easy job in this world. There are some women who are good at it and there are some who simply do it because they have no choice. Some women choose a middle path while others do working in a more flexible way or through freelance.
Mums who have the choice whether to work or not to work must consider many things before they make the decision. Of course they need to be clear about their priorities – career or family. They must be aware that by taking the decision to work, they would probably miss out major milestones on their children’s lives.
Admittedly, mothers get the blame for all that is wrong in the life of their children. When they got weight problems, it is often attributed to the quality and type of meals prepared by them. Even when the children are not good on a particular subject, the accountability is still passed to the mothers maybe because she did not breastfeed her children.
I just want to clarify that this blog post has no intention of being a sexist. I write this as a way of appreciating all working mothers out there who do their best to do manage both careers and family.
Personally, I believe that women do work more than men every day. Say in situation, I start my day as early as five in the morning because I have to prepare breakfast for my son and my husband. Then, I fix the house and do the chores. Before noon, of course I have to prepare our lunch although in some occasion my husband does because he is a chef. But then, I am his best assistant. So, when all things are in order, I then start working on my computer.
I may not be working in a typical office where I have to work from 9 o’clock in the morning until six in the evening but I know how it is to juggle multiple tasks in a daily basis. I work as a fulltime mother to my seven-year old son, wife to my husband and the overall in-charge of my various online businesses. I get tired too, just like any other mothers out there working in a 9 to 6 job. But unlike some of them, I am happy and still have plenty of time to spend playing with my son and chatting with my husband.
Even though all of my time is taken up with my online business I can remember the time back in the UK when I was desperate to get involved in the property rental business and I have always been really interested in any kind of news stories on the subject.
The current economical climate seems to have had such a negative effect on the thousands of people who over stretched themselves with buying rental properties but it stands to sense that there must be some absolutely amazing opportunities out there which are crying out to be taken advantage of.
This argument has been going on for years and many people have very strong views on which is best, a working mom or a stay at home mom. I think that it goes without saying that a stay at home mom is best for the children in that there will always be someone there for them and having a stay at home mom will make the children feel more secure.
There has always been this great pressure to keep up with the Jones’s and this problem has been around for many, many decades and I have often felt this pressure in my own life.
As an only child to parent that I would consider to be middle class and have a comfortable pension there is always this pressure to follow their lead whether we want to or not. The need to look good at all times and to feel like we fit in among their friends.
