#MothersDay The decision to become a ‘sitting at home Mother’ - A blog by Manjari

I would not hesitate in saying that there has been a culture of women forsaking their jobs after they become a mother of someone to be taken care of at their home. This is also a bitter fact that no mother has a choice when her young one is expecting her presence at home and she has to be out at work. On this mothers’ day I am dedicating my deep thoughts to all those women who had given up their career a few years back for the right up-bringing of their children. This was my mom too.



I had a chance to read an article of Victoria Beckham where she explained her feelings of trouble while leaving her children at home when she was out of country for work. She is wife of David Beckham and a model turned renowned designer herself who is a mother of three lovely kids. She said she felt guilty of not being able to be with her kids when they were babies and needed their mother the most. Though she thinks she had to be strong and leave her kids at home under the service of care takers.

Women have conquered a lot of hurdles in their journey of making their presence at every work place. This made them face conservative social mindset, stand against their family and prove themselves efficient enough to manage work and household responsibilities both. However, there is one thing that still makes women sacrifice their career and there are many who have to give up their designation when it comes to be with their child at home.
A women has n number of roles to perform in her life right from being a daughter to being a wife a mother and supposedly a grandmother too. In the consequences when is becomes a mother she is responsible for complete making up of a completely novel soul for this universe, unlike her other roles. She not only gives birth to a child, she has to ensure the child is healthy, happy and efficient enough to lead the world. And every women knows this is not an easy task. This is ever challenging for a working mother who has to afford a break from her career to ensure she is there for her child all the time as long as required.

This is a clear frustration when a women has to give up her designation and career and start pursuing a dependent life even after being efficient and talented enough to conquer the zenith. A gap of some five year is the least required as per the views I have collected from my friends who are or have been in similar situation.
Mothers’ day is not over for the mothers who have sacrificed their career for the right up-bringing of their children. It lasts for the entire year in their thoughts, plans, wishes, deeds, acts, moves and breaks too. You are often not appreciated as much as you should be. You are often made to silent your wishes and devote entirely in the making up of the wishes of your children. This is not an easy to manage life as the children would soon become big enough and you might feel abandoned at home with least importance showered and most free time in hand. When children start closing their room before you its Start Caring about Yourself Back. Just don’t wait for anyone else to praise you for what all you have done for others. Pamper yourself, appreciate yourself and get your attention back on yourself.
