How is trying to balance work and family life affecting you?
- Do you constantly try to strike the right balance between work and family life?
- Do you feel bad about wanting to work?
- Do you admire the patience of other mums and wonder if there’s something wrong with you?
- Do you find the pressures of work easier to deal with than the pressure of trying to manage your child’s behaviour?
- Are you desperate to prove to family and friends you can work and be a good mum?
- Do you worry about the effect on your child of leaving them in other people’s care?
- Does the reality of spending time with your child not live up to the lovely time you picture when you’re thinking of them when you’re at work?
- Do you often think of your child, and how you’re neglecting them when you’re at work?
- And then do you find it hard to switch off thinking about work when you’re finally with your child?
- Have you heard that working mothers risk their children doing worse at school, becoming unemployed and suffering mental stress and want to make sure that your child is not affected?
- Are there more arguments and fusses than you’d like when you’re with your child?
- Do you struggle to discipline your child, and be consistent, because you’re not with them very long and you feel they have to cope with enough?
- Do you feel judged for not being firm enough with your child?
- Do you try to make up for working by buying your child ‘things’ or nice holidays? And yet still feel your child doesn’t get what they deserve?
- Do you worry about feeding your child more fast food that you’d like?
- Do you feel you have to justify your decision to work to family members and the stay-at-home mums?
- Do you feel bad sometimes for enjoying time away from your children?
- And do you feel extra guilty when you try to meet your own needs for exercise or socialising?
- Do you feel strangely jealous of your child’s ‘carer’ that they can spend lovely times with your child and be there to witness developmental milestones or your child’s ‘firsts?’
- Do you sometimes worry that your child loves their ‘carer’ more than you?
- Do you find you ‘baby’ your child so they do less for themselves and don’t help around the house much? Partly because you feel so guilty that you work?
- And yet do you find yourself yelling at your child more than you’d like, especially when you’re tired and stressed from having to juggle everything?
Does your child…
- Find it difficult when you’re not around?
- Have rushed, bad-tempered mornings?
- Seem to behave much worse when you’re around?
- Moan about child care arrangements even though you know they are well cared-for?
- Make you feel guilty for leaving them?
- Appear very materialistic, constantly pestering you for more ‘things?’
- Appear very grown up sometimes, but lacks self-control when it comes to angry outbursts and making demands?
- Need reassurance that you love them?
- Seem a bit distant when you are around?
Do you want…
- To stop feeling guilty about being a working Mum.
- To learn how to make the time you do spend with your child real quality time that you both enjoy and look forward to!
- To stop yelling and learn to discipline your child without even raising your voice.
- To prove to your family and friends that you’re a great mum and have a lovely well-behaved child.
- To rest assured that your child is having a happy childhood. Without feeling guilt-ridden!
