Concerns Of A Working Mom

If you are a working mother, a time comes when you have to leave your toddler behind at home with grandparents or at the day care centre. This is initially traumatic for your child and he will show separation anxiety. He is unsure whether you will come back and thus resorts to crying and clinging.

Do not sneak away; this will increase his fears and insecurities. Explain clearly that you will come back, say a quick goodbye, and walk away briskly. Your child will stop crying soon. When you come back, he is happy and reassured. As this continues, his trust in your return is etched in his memory and the separation anxiety disappears.

Concerns Of A Working Mom

Make the right choices- If there is an option to do so, choose to stay with your child until he is ready for school. You are his first teacher and your presence during his preschool years is invaluable.

Handling guilt- If you have no other choice and are compelled to go back to work, do not spoil your child by pampering him to pacify your guilt. If you are a working mom, your child will soon adjust to your schedule. So, be firm in disciplining him and in following necessary family rules such as proper mealtimes and bedtime.
