Getting up early in the morning, cooking, getting the kids ready for school, dropping them to school, going to office (trying to be productive and competitive), then back at home in the evening and trying to balance the household work, your child’s homework and other activities.  Does this all sound familiar?  This has become very common as many working women are trying to balance their career, kids and house. Read on to know how to balance your career and your children.

  • Set your priorities; what is important to you, your kids and family or your career? Define your goals and decide how you are willing to achieve these.
  • Make a realistic schedule, like if it’s possible to squeeze your work hours a little to spend more time with your family. Talk to your boss regarding your working hours; many will be willing to reduce them if you consider your family important.
  • Attend your child’s school activities, functions and parent/teacher meetings. This helps you to stay connected with your children’s activities and makes them feel important and worthy.
  • Take help from family or friends when required.
