I’m more than sure that no one has to tell all you working moms out there that being a working mom is extremely tough. From the time our children are born we feel like we have to be superwoman, caring for and loving our children to an extreme all while trying to create a work-life balance. What they never told me was that there is no such thing! It seems like the work-life balance that employers are not so eager to discuss is an illusion and they constantly get away with having to provide that balance because somehow just by acknowledging that you need that balance is balance enough. And employers that don’t have children will never understand…they just won’t! Maybe this is wrong to throw out there but if they’re male employers with or without children, they won’t understand either. I find that 9 out of 10 times male employers with children are almost never with their children as much as their partner is so the burden of having to create a work-life balance doesn’t exist. Let’s not get crazy and ask them to understand why you, a working mother, need to create more of a balance.
