Over the past few weeks there seems to have been an increase in posts about the juggling act we have as working parents.
To be honest, parenthood can be such a juggling act without factoring in any type of work or any activities for ourselves.
And when we do find something for ourselves we feel guilty. Over the past month I have come across these great posts about getting that balance. Sorry for the ones that I have missed but feel free to link below if you have any posts you have enjoyed or that have helped you to get a better work/life balance as a parent. And please do share your own top tips and experiences in the comments.
This week saw a post from our very own Sally Whittle. As well as already highlighting in September about the personal professional social media divide she then went on to write a post that I am sure most working parents can empathise with. She reflects on whether we can have it all at the same time. I wonder how many other mums feel like they are failing at their parenting duties due to work commitments too?
This week we also started the discussion about education with a post from Hannah Clementson. It really highlighted the situation with educating young women with children as well as education levels once they reach their 30′s. I am keen to bring more educational options to our readers to showcase.
The Muliebrity blog highlighted going for a job only to be relieved when not being offered it. A similar sentiment felt by Jayne over at Mums the Word this month too. Contented Mummy also mulled over commuting and whether it is a work lifestyle she could choose after having children.
And just to end up on a fun note Mammasaurus showed us a bit of her budding writing career.
I am hoping to highlight more posts next month as I think we all have so many different things to share. It can be such a support so if you feel you have a post that can help why not share with us!
