1. Stop Feeling Guilty:
First of all, let go of the mom’s “GUILT”. Yes, we come across many working moms, especially mothers of toddlers who hold the guilt of being away from the child because of work schedules. Stop paying attention to random people who judge your motherly love for not giving all your time to children. Tell yourself that you are best to choose whatsoever for yourself and your child.

Whatsoever you have to do, plan it properly. set a routine, think of the flow. It may not work always 100% but will help you to a great extent. Being organized does not guarantee perfection but it sets a discipline in your life, helping you to lessen last moment disappointments.

We take shortcuts every time to reach our destinations so why not set some shortcuts in our day to day life and save some time?
Have to leave early morning for a meeting, keep something ready for lunch a night before, it will surely save your time. Have to just check emails, check while commuting (In case you are traveling by cab/metro).
We live in a digital world, save time by buying online, Grocery, poultry and everything you need. All the time you saved can be utilized to spend with your children and family.

4. Hire Helpers/Nannies
Yes, Women can handle almost everything on their own but taking a little help from a helper for household chores or a nanny/caretaker for children or elderly at home won’t harm anything. It’s good if you opt for the one.
Try to be careful while you hiring anyone, go for the ones with strong references along with proper background verifications especially for nannies and caretakers. Meanwhile, make sure you have installed cameras (specifically in case of toddlers while leaving them all day with nannies).
5. Take Tips From Your Mom
Yes, tips are the savior in some situations when it comes to practice something that someone has already done before. Every time the internet won’t help you to deal with a real-time situation. So, discuss or brainstorm with experienced moms/aunts or friends.
Like you are going for a 2-days conference and want to manage things in your absence. Ask someone in your circle how they dealt with it once. Nothing should hold you back to learn tricks to be a super working mom.
I have a WhatsApp group of my school friends, all married and mothers, we often share everything related to our toddlers/dealing with situations and everyone puts required inputs. It has worked most of the time for all of us over there.
Try it with your circle!
6. Make Family/Child Your Priority
So, what if you are working – in no means you are a slave to your work. Be open to your manager in case of emergencies back home. If your child falls sick (God forbid) he/she needs you at home right away, no doubt you have a nanny already but you have to be with your child at the moment.
I remember I was once in my toddler’s school event regarding child development the chief guest was a renowned personality who in his speech said,” Quit the job if it hinders the bond between you and your child”. I am following this religiously in my life.
7. Take care of yourself
You are the pillar of the family, don’t take yourself for granted – Eat healthily, so you have the energy to play all vital roles, look good and fresh it brings on the confidence level every time.
