Working Mums Are Awesome

It’s the day after Mother’s Day and however you spent your day, if you’re a working mum you are probably heading back to work today or later this week.

You may be a working mum through choice or through necessity. There are lots of dual-earning families out there – whatever the reason, you need to know you are awesome!

Maybe you don’t always feel awesome – there will be times when you question your decision and guilt can start to creep in. We think it’s important to be proud of all your achievements both as a parent and as an employee or business owner.

So, we’re laying down some rules for all you working mums!

 

 

 

 

  1. Never forget – all working mums love their families and do their best.

 

  1. Be happy and confident in your decision – whether you want to work or have to work, accept that you’ve made a choice that is best for you and your family.

 

  1. Tell guilt to ‘do one’ – don’t constantly berate yourself for not spending enough time with your children. It’s a destructive emotion and can gnaw away at you.

 

  1. Remember you are a great role model for your daughters and sons. Seeing Mum working to fulfill her own ambitions or to support the family goes a long way to helping the next generation accept that gender bias has no place in society.

 

  1. Be proud of the commitment you are making to contribute to supporting your family.

 

  1. Have realistic expectations. Whether you work full-time or part-time you will have to make choices on a daily basis. We bet you’re already great at planning and being organized. Ask everyone in the family to pitch in wherever possible.

 

  1. Make sure you have some ‘me time’ too. Every working mum we know puts loads of energy into her family. So, you deserve time off occasionally to relax and recharge.

 

  1. Don’t judge or compare your situation to others. Every family is different and what suits others won’t suit you.
