Mother’s day is here, and it reminds me all the challenges that working moms deal with. They say, “It’s not easy to be a working mother, you have to be willing to screw up at each level.” But, they manage all the things at the same time, maintaining work-life balance.
They juggle multiple roles at the same time of being an affectionate mother, a productive employee, an adoring wife, and a great human being. Long back, being a working mom was regarded as a tough decision, which was made out of financial obligation and not something that women would enjoy doing. Women would work only if they had to, else they’ll just stay at home. This is not true, it never was, women choose to work because they want to. Even when they are working a full-time job, they would never neglect their children and do the best for them. She sets an example for her children.
So, on this Mother’s Day, to recognize a mother’s contribution, let’s have a look at some of the careers lessons from working moms:
Working mothers teach their kids how to prioritize, schedule, be productive, and stay organized. Stay-at-home moms do that too, but working ones can explain how these things can be implemented to the outside world too. This can be really helpful to them when they apply for a job or a college. They teach their children to work hard if they want to achieve something, hard work pays off.
Not to be self-centered
People say motherhood is another word for sacrifice. They consider her a bad mother if she is not willing to sacrifice for her children. A mother is always with her child, even when she doesn’t take her along. She always thinks twice before taking a decision, once for herself, and the other time for her children. She teaches them to be generous and not be selfish. After all, it’s not about them all the time.
Be an exemplar for your children
Some women take the place of a role model for their children breaking the barriers of gender roles, especially for daughters. In this era of “Gender discrimination”, it is really important to teach your children that mothers can work, even when the world tells the opposite.
Happy Mother’s Day!
