I went back to work after having a baby, and I feel guilty about not being there for them all the time. How can I cope with mom guilt?

I understand how challenging it can be to balance work and motherhood, especially when feelings of guilt arise. Remember, you're not alone in this journey. Many parents have faced similar struggles and found ways to cope. First, let go of the guilt. Your decision to work is a reflection of your dedication to providing for your family. Seek support from other moms who understand your situation and can offer guidance. Build a strong support network of friends, family, and coworkers who can provide practical assistance and emotional support. Take care of yourself, both mentally and physically, and cherish the quality time you have with your child. You're doing an incredible job, and it's okay to ask for help when you need it. Give yourself grace and know that you're doing what's best for your family.

Here are some strategies to help you cope with feelings of guilt: Recognize your value: Acknowledge that being a working parent doesn't diminish your love or dedication to your child. Your efforts to provide for your family are valuable and commendable. Quality over quantity: Focus on the quality of time you spend with your child rather than the quantity. Make the most of the time you have together by being present and engaged. Communicate with your child: Even if they're young, find ways to connect with your child during the day through photos, videos, or quick phone calls. Let them know you're thinking about them. Build a support network: Surround yourself with understanding friends, family, or other working parents who can offer empathy, advice, and practical help when needed. Practice self-care: Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally. This might involve setting boundaries, seeking professional help if needed, and carving out time for activities that recharge U.

Not at all. I feel it depends upon a lot of factors. Slowly let in your daughter also in this decision and make sure she’s also comfortable. If everyone is on the same page, then there’s no harm!
No it's not at all a wrong decision. It depends upon the situation you are in. and itt should be combined decision of you and your daughter .

hlw everyone, i have talked to my husband and in laws also. my father in law knows everything but he never interfere between us. last week was very disturbing for me. as i asked divorce from my husband. he was heartbroken and asked for a chance. this time he has consulted a psychiatrist and tdke medicine also. now i am just praying everything be good.
Hi Neha... First of all, he's an absolute loser and you are a brave lady to even think about your options. Most would have left someone like that to get his sh*t together. There are 2 ways in most situations.... 1. He'll forever be an addict if he isn't showing any motive to give up.... 2. He's trying his best to sober down and be the dad he's supposed to be. The choice is yours. You can stick around and wait or find a way and leave. If you want to give him time, please prepare yourself for a plan B. And keep your child informed. Sounds strange? yes!! But most experts in this area emphasize on having clear communication when children are involved. This way they won't grow up confused and will have at least one parent to trust completely. The way you talk to your child is important though. Something like, Dad's made a terrible choice of food and now he's feeling sick. Let's wait till he gets better. In the meantime let's play. So it's not too overwhelming.

I am a mother and an educator in charter schools and ABC Youth Foundation. I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
