new demands on workingmum

over the last year, the number of posts on workingmum has reduced. i guess that’s because the real conflicts between working life and being a good mum have reduced (see earlier post). however a new challenge has come into the fray, one that many in their forties are no doubt also facing.

as our parents get older, the more that their needs come centrally into the equation. so now we have children, parents and work to balance. of course, if like me you live miles/hours away from your parents, trying to be there for them is tricky, but of course it’s critical that you are there for them. i’m thinking i may reflect on this new dynamic in family/working life
