AS a working mom, it’s easy to feel torn between your obligations at work and home.  If you have a career that you enjoy, you can also feel guilty for enjoying yourself when you are away from home and away from the kids.  Is this wrong?  It can feel wrong.  But it’s all about perspective.  Here are 5 ways to view the situation differently to help you get past the guilt. 

  1. Get in your head that your child needs you more than your time. 
  2. Don’t mistake enjoying your work for not missing or wanting to be with your children  
  3. Get good at compartmentalizing you roles  
  4. Accept that every brain needs some down time  
  5. Don’t see your decision to work outside of the home as a reflection of your commitment to your children.
