According to a recent study by Disney's new parenting site in the UK, many working moms find it hard to balance life at home with their professional lives.
The research showed that 62% of mothers of children under seven who work full hours or part-time would prefer to leave their jobs. 84% of parents admitted to being ‘physically worn out’, while 68% reported feeling ‘exhausted’ and ‘emotionally drained’.
However, the balance is still hard to keep. Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom, you still never have enough hours in the day to give to yourself or your family. I find myself up late at night trying to have 'me' time and work at home. During the day I try to do some online networking with other moms, while caring for my kids and household. Of course something always gets neglected and that is usually the household chores or me.
While I believe our focus should always be on our children, it is also important for moms to achieve their dreams and find time for themselves. I like to call my personal time, "mamas time out". This desire has driven me to start a site and support call in show for moms to share parenting/motherhood experiences while getting support from one another and featured experts.
