A working mother is an asset for her children not only in terms of financial support but also as a symbol of strength and confidence. Researchers conclude that children who have working mothers are smarter, confident and understanding than the ones who don’t have working mothers.
Usually children idealize their mothers for their multitasking capabilities at home and office. Being a working mother myself, I have experienced how influenced my child is towards me and how he idealizes me for what I do and tries to help me in my endeavors. He is only 2.5 years of age but he helps me pack my laptop bag, does not let the a stranger touch my laptop or purse and says it’s mom’s and no one should touch it.
