Working Mom or Housewife? Any Compromise?
The Conflict Emerges
Everyday while you dress and get ready to head your work, you hear that voice inside you saying” Am I right to leave my kids and go to work? Should I stay with them and leave everything till they can be strong enough to be self dependent? A whirlpool of thoughts hits your head and leaves you entirely consumed at the end of every day. The start of this internal conflict comes from the fear from losing money, promotion, social prestige especially if the job is notable. Moreover, your life converts to an exhausting and confusing experience due to the diversity of tasks required to balance it.
Trying To Get The Best Out of Everything
From my and other moms’ experience, I can tell you that everyone has his own battle. All depends on the circumstances, the mom's luck to find a perfect day care, her causes to go out to work and her personality type. I personally stayed with my babies till they were 3.6 and 1.6. Then went back to work. Since then I have never been comfortable. All the time I had the feeling they were not happy. During the working hours my head was crowded by what would have happened to them in the nursery. Though before sending them to their nursery I saw tons of nurseries. However, my elder daughter has never been happy there. When I decided to have my last baby, I seriously considered leaving the traditional office job and decided to switch to ONLINE jobs.
I believe that online jobs were invented by moms and for moms in the first place then they evolved till it included all categories. Since then, I have been able to control my time, to attend school events without bothering to take permissions from my bosses. No tensions and conflicts with colleagues. No worry about promotions. And finally no stress when living with tiny kids that have nothing to do with my struggles with life.
