Think Not What Your Business Can Do for You...
The “mom guilt” is real. You don’t realize how real it is until you become a mom. But it quickly arrives as soon as your first child comes into your life.
This guilt causes some women to choose the stay-at-home-mom role, which is an extremely admirable position. But sometimes you just really need something of your own. Don’t let your “mom guilt” get in the way of having your own career, especially since it can help your children grow, too!
…But What It Can Do for Your Children
According to a Harvard study, children of working mothers tend to be high achievers. This isn’t to say children of SAHMs aren’t successful, but it does show that working and being a mom won’t keep your child from developing into a successful adult.
Children of working moms tend to also be more independent, since they are given more duties because mom works. They’re more likely to learn how to get themselves up and dressed in the mornings, as well as make sure they have everything they need for the day.
Working moms experience quality times with their kids, too. Since a working mom isn’t at home all day, she’s able to see the importance of seizing moments when she can with her children.
And when it comes to you: Having your own career helps lower your risk of depression, as well as helps recharge you. It gives you the break that you need in order to come back and be the mom you want to be—a calmer, cooler, more collected mom.
