For decades, the role of moms is only picturized as a caretaker or a nurturer restricting the women to the domestic space laden with extensive family responsibilities. However, the other side of the coin is strong and independent women who are nurturers having the potential to feed every aspect of society from business to home.
However, there are certain challenges that are constantly faced by working mothers, and there is an immediate need to encourage women to overcome any limitations.
The first and the most common challenge that working moms need to face in routine is maintaining a work-life balance. From handling business meetings, prospects to household chores, the imbalance could have drastic effects on their mental and emotional health. But this is more of an internal process that needs women to develop a feeling of satisfaction and adapt to their routine.
The next big challenge is more of a feeling that working women with children tend to develop when they choose their careers over their home. This is more of societal norms that place them in a questionable position. However, support from the family as well as children is something that could help turn the odds into even.
We all have hopes and aspirations, and so do the working moms. But a common problem they tend to face is the rift between passion and obligation, creating chaos between what they want and what they must do. Nevertheless, this needs women to be true decision-makers and hear their conscience to ensure a confidant move in the right direction without losing a grip of their family.
When women enter the professional world, their priorities are often questioned in contrast to men, who are often portrayed as breadwinners. But the change in the present landscape must be acknowledged by society as well as family to ensure a positive and blossoming environment could be given to the women who choose a professional life.
The hassle of multi-tasking and leaving no space for themselves is yet another challenge that women encounter when they start leading a professional life. And overcoming this challenge only needs women to be a little better at time management skills.
Summing it up, overcoming these challenges only needs women, men, and society to develop a higher conscience and to encourage women to organize, plan work, and sustain a mutual relationship of acknowledgment.
Such an approach could help develop cordial relationships with family, children, as well as coworkers without making women compromise on their ambitions.
