The world has changed in many ways, but none so much as the role of the modern-day mother. Schonali talks about the various options available for working from home today.
Today’s mothers are unapologetic for their sense of self, their self-confidence, and their ability to choose the kind of life they want to lead after they have had children. For them, work from home is a concept that is now a conscious choice.
Their mothers either worked or didn’t, but almost every young mother today has enjoyed access to a full education and may hold at least one college degree. Most modern mums had a job for a while before they had children, where they probably did well and were steadily promoted through the ranks at whichever company they worked. And many, after motherhood crossed their threshold, chose to step away from that fast-paced world and slow it down intentionally – to enjoy the magic and wonder of watching their children grow, at home.
While there is immeasurable joy that comes from being at home with your children and giving them that security, warmth, and love that they can take for granted (and rightly so), for a woman who did pursue an education and a career at an earlier point in her life this scenario may not fill up ALL the hours in her day that she wants to fill.
