Go through the suggestions below, try implementing them from this Mother's Day and you will be positively surprised at how easily you have achieved that fine balance between work and children, that you have been trying to attain all along. Let this Mother's Day be the beginning of a new journey for you.
However busy you are, you must try to spend some quality time with your kids. It is not necessary that you spend several hours with them, but how you spend the time is what matters. Simple gossiping about the topics of their interest or showing enthusiasm for their preferences will make the day memorable for you, as well as for them. At least an hour of a good time together can negate the daylong absence
A good working mother has to divide her time equally between her home and workplace. Try to manage time as well as you can. Endless chats with colleagues or friends after working hours are not going to help your relationship with children or take them anywhere in life. The more your kids get to spend time with you, the more are they going to learn from you and be emotionally secure with your loving care and support. Your career is important but does it matter more than your kids?
Even if you are pretty busy and cannot come home early, make sure that you give your kids at least two calls daily from office. Discuss about their school, friends or life in general. Even if you do not have anything interesting to talk about, chat about some recent incident that you both have been part of. Let them feel that you are open and just a call away.
Remember, a hug a day keeps the blues away. A hug and a kiss, administered to your child daily, can make him/her emotionally more stable and give an assurance of a loving presence. Make it a point to give this medicine twice to your kid, once in the morning after waking up and once in the night before going to sleep.
