The Keys for Working Moms

• Raising children only comes once in a lifetime.

• Be proactive and creative. Many supervisors are open to considering creative solutions when they are presented, but will not be so conscious as to offer them unasked.

• Absolve yourself of “mommy guilt.” You are doing the best that you can.

 • A desire for a career does not make you a bad mother, nor does a desire for work/life balance make you a bad employee.

• If you have a partner, ask them for their help and unconditional support.

• Find a community of mothers who also work outside the home. So much mom support is based on the stay-at-home crowd, and while some of our issues are the same, some are very different.

• Even if support and a listening ear is all this community can offer, it can be helpful to know that other women are experiencing the very same issues that you are.
