How can working mothers take care of their kids?


Student | Posted on

Amongst many preconceived notions and set rules,this is one,that the child is mainly to be taken care of by the mother.After multiple revolutions,we still lack a mental evolution.The child is not a responsibility of just the mother,the father has an equal part to be played here.Even the non-working member should support the parents by volunteering to take care of the child.If both the parents are working,there are some steps that can be followed to keep up with both your personal and professional life.

Hire a full-time nanny who is qualified enough and someone whom you can trust fully with your child.

Prepare a diet plan for your baby to be strictly followed by the nanny.

Pump some of your milk in advance and keep it bottled so that it can be used earlier.

When you finally come back home,make sure you leave all your office work there itself.

Many maternity as well as paternity leaves have also been launched by the government to support working mothers,especially.

Spend the weekend and the free time with your baby,massaging him/her and try to indulge in stimulating activities to promote mental as well as physical growth.

The upbringing of a child is not a child’s play, especially when you are a working mother. It is never easy to handle kids’ upbringing and your job together. We have to, however, learn to cope up with the situation.

Given below are some tricks to do both the work together easily.

• Never bring office work at home.

• When you are in office, always be in contact with home, and keep checking on what’s going on there time to time.

• Never think you are alone to handle all the domestic work. Distribute all the household work among all the adults equally so that no one feels over-burdened.

• Choose your office wisely. Don’t get hired by a company which demands you to do work at odd hours.

• You must have a proper schedule, and you must follow it very closely. Only then will you be able to divide your time between office and children.

• Have a good conversation with your child at least once a day. And dedicate your weekends and off-days only and only for your family.
