Gone are the days when the typical mother stayed at home, while her husband worked to support the family. Due to the change in economics and the change of the role of women within society, many moms now work two full time jobs; one at home and one outside of the home at a professional place of employment.
Cooking, cleaning, taking the kids to soccer practice, taking care of the house, and working full time can be very stressful at times for many working mothers. However in this day and age, it has become somewhat of the norm for many women. Time management skills, and ways to overcome stress, are two of the most important aspects of the working mother.
With children involved in so many different extracurricular activities, and work’s demands at an all-time high, working mothers see that careful planning, along with personal sacrifice are both required to ensure that things go smoothly both around the house and while at work. With the need for a supplemental income, and in many cases, a main income, many working mothers’ jobs are of the utmost importance, and they have to learn to juggle the fine line between family and career.
