Challenges All Working Parents Face
When heroes make sacrifices, history is created. But you know that there are millions of heroes out there who are making sacrifices every day and in most cases, the effort goes unnoticed.
Who are Working Parents
Confused as whom am talking about? I am talking about all those parents who are making sacrifices to make sure that they are for their children all the time.
Working parents are those where both the mother and father is being a part of a profession and are earning a living. The trend of both parents working is increasing in the present day for the various reasons and the trend is prominent all over the world.
Why Parents Work
Statistics show that there are mostly two main reasons as to why both parents choose to work.
To be Able to Support a Better Livelihood
In today’s world with rising prices of every resource and daily usage stuff, it is pretty difficult for one person to support a family as one has to pay bills, take care of EMIs, pay the premium of various insurance and also be able to afford a healthy living by being able to buy quality goods.
If you are having a child there are extra responsibilities where you have to take care of school fees, transport to commute, tuition fees and many more things. And believe me when I say the expenses just increase with time. Therefore it is almost not possible for one individual to take full responsibility to run a family.
Major Problems Faced by Working Parents
You Always Need Someone’s Help to Take Care of Your Child
Growing up a child is a full-time job and even if you have taken permission to work remotely you will need a child care person to look after your kid every minute when you are working at home. If you need to go to the office then there surely needs to be a person around your child.
The woes are that you have to make sure that the person is taking proper care of your kid in your absence and is not hurting the child. Also, the person needs to be trustworthy as you are going to leave him/her with the most prized possession of your life for whom you are making so much effort. And even after doing all kinds of background inquiry there will be moments when you feel anxious and worried for your little one.
You Feel You Are Not Giving Your All
In most cases when you have to stay away from your child for long for office work, meetings as a working parent you feel guilty because not only are you missing your little one but you feel as if the kid is not getting enough love, care, support etc from you which the person deserves.
As a parent, you feel as if you are missing on your kid and the feeling really hurts.
Professional Loyalty is Doubted
As kids often catch various diseases and as a beloved parent you take leave to nurse your child your boss might question your loyalty towards your profession as he can feel that you can not be able to handle greater responsibilities alongside being a working parent.
