Some other moms define balance as being able to work a few days a week. They may have not have to be or want to be the breadwinner and can afford to work part-time so that they can keep their foot in their career door, go to wor. There’s some criticism that work life balance simply doesn’t exist. The theory is that being a mom is too chaotic, messy and sporadic to ever get a grip on things. There will always be more diapers to change, more laundry to fold, and more homework to check.

One of the hardest things about working when you’re a mom is being able to figure out how you’re supposed to balance your time. If you have a partner to share your responsibilities with than it can be a little easier. However the reality is that a lot of full-time jobs simply don’t fit well around the schedule of a child. You can find balance in life as a work at home mom.

It takes intention, practice, and discipline, but it truly can be done. Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself a bit whether it is in getting tools and supplies, an education, or the hands on help you know you can benefit from. Jennifer Jackson, Julian (15), Ariana (13), Jason (16) Courtesy. “Most working moms struggle to find work-life balance, and we are often left feeling like it is zero-sum game in which 100% is being shared and the balance is found in some sort of 50/50 split.

This is a game we all end up losing, and it is never 50/50. Local mom blogs, such as Working Moms Against Guilt, are a great way to reach out to others trying to find the same work-home balance. 3 of 13 Applications.

We’ve learned from lockdown what really matters at work—and what’s not worth returning to. By Meredith Bodgas posted Aug 24th, 2020 Office closures have taught white-collar working moms that they probably didn’t need to make. Being a working mom is hard and finding balance is always a challenge. We spoke with one working mom who has managed to perfectly balance her work life and family life while doing something she loves. Now she’s helping other moms to follow her path.

Lisa, a mother of 3, was hesitant to go back to a 9-5 job when her youngest child started school. How to Find Balance as a Mother. Since becoming a mother I have been chasing the seemingly impossible dream of a balanced lifestyle. I’ve been a full-time working mom, a part-time working mom, a bring-your-child-to-part-time-work mom, a stay-at-home mom, a self-employed work-at-home mom, a telecommuting work-at-home mom and for the most part some combination of.

  • It’s really hard to be a working mom. It’s great that you are able to manage it ��❤️ Nice video by the way ������ love it!!
    New subbie here. Hope we can support each other ��

  • i hate depending on people,what if one day he leaves you or cheats on you
    because u have no where to go,you just suck it up or beg him to take you back

  • Hey there! I have a question I’d love input on. My wife and I are about to have a newborn and the doctor tells us they strongly recommend the Tdap shot for my wife and anyone who will be in close contact with our newborn.

    The thing is.. we can’t force people to get the shot. Just curious what you did with your little ones? I had the shot in 2017 so we think I’m good. My wife is definitely getting it. But we live with my Dad and his girlfriend and they don’t seem worried about getting it.

    Which I’m kinda ok with as long as they wash their hands and all that before being around our little guy and holding him. But I don’t know if that’s being stupid and reckless or not.

    Any advice would be great so I can at least try and get another perspective �� Thank you!

  • So while you sit on your judgmental asses, bitching about working mothers; there’s WORKING MOTHERS who are in the medical field working on the front lines of the coronavirus! So F-U

  • My opinion is being a sahm is great until something in the marriage goes wrong. Sorry to be negative but its true women have to be prepared to possibly be financially independent in the future no matter how good you think your marriage is

  • Thank you for this video! I’m a single mom to my 3 year old daughter. I too work as a manager in a corporate restaurant. My hours are insane and unfortunately rarely the same every week. I am off work either at 9pm or I close where I get off around 12:30 at night.

  • Hi Bri. How many mins or hours do you drive going to and from work? I get exhausted by the drive, it added extra effort and stress in my daily activity. Any advise? Thanks. All is well!:)

  • Balance is an ideology that we try to get close to as possible. For me “balance” is when you give yourself time to DO YOU. Wonderful video. I totally get what you mean.

  • I`ve tried and tried to make income using all of the sites that claimed I would bring in money within hours daily, but none of them worked out. My friends told me to google “Jαmjο Sutu”, and now I am making hundreds of dollars daily. I definitely advise trying it..

  • Great video! You’re extremely relatable to us mommas that wear many hats. Thank you for sharing your experience. I’ve subscribed to your channel so I can see more videos!

  • I think it’s better if women had full time jobs like their husbands and they both do their fair share of housework. If we just let the husband work his ass off outside of home while the wife stays at home, the husband is just going to get taxed more on his income.

  • so glad i came across your video im a mom to be 2months pregnant going back to school in September already driving me crazy how im going to balance school and time with the baby and my husband but please definitely keep.making more videos i feel so motivated ❤, and if you have facebook or any kind of social media id like to.add you as well!!

  • I know this is old, but this is so helpful. I am 22 and trying to have a baby now. I work an hour away as a bank teller (once I hit full time it will be those 8-5 hours). It’s gonna be soo hard, but I have to work & I want a family. New subbie! ��

  • That’s an excuse for being able to sit home chitchat on the phone to their girlfriends or go and watch days of our lives while stuff in their ass to get fatter. I want to skinny girl that has a good job that’s willing to work and has something going for herself. Not a fat lazy bitch with kids that lays on her ass all day

  • Wow you have such a nice office, especially for someone with your title! That’s awesome, you really must do much more than your title implies

  • I think that if your work is more importiant than your Kids you should not have any Kids. If you can og it is possible you should stay home with Them. I am a house wife with 5 children. I live in Europe but I dont know the laws in the US for What is possible for women there

  • Shout out to all working mommas������ is even harder���� TFS your day., gorgeous I’m so happy I got to see this ������ also a working mom here ������ New Friend here giving some support to your channel I hope we can connect ��✅��✅

  • So happy I found your channel new subbie here ❤️❤️ you are ROCKING it all! I can relate sooo hard to not getting my eyeliner to match �� noticed lots of similarities in our morning routines I just uploaded my routine to my channel; hope you’ll check it out!

  • All women need is her own money independent money
    So
    Why not create a business or job with which you can have money while being with childrens

  • The idea of having children and then farming them out to someone else to raise seems completely ridiculous to me. Why bother having children at all?

  • moms who dont stay at home with the kids, take care of the home etc are selfish evil people, if you cant afford it, DONT have kids.. only a husband and a wife should have kids, and then the husband takes care of the family financially

  • I plan on keeping my career. I also plan on having one child. I don’t believe having a child means either parent needs to give up their career. The most well-adjusted family out of all of my relatives would be my father’s older sister, her husband, and their 3 boys. That’s also the only family unit in our extended family where both parents worked through their whole adult lives (both as professors).

  • Staying at home with children is very important I hated leaving my daughter it pained me and when I was staying at home with her I enjoyed the time spent but I was broke. If I had a supportive husband who could provide for us I woulda have gladly stayed at home and by age three I would have went back to school full time only then I would have stated working when my kid was five. I feel like that would have been a great balance bc I could have still worked on myself while being there for my kid. These past two years have been rough going to school full time and working par-time long traveling ours and no days off. I envy the fact that some women had a choice to work. I had no help from the other parent it was tough!!!!!

  • Here’s an unpopular opinion.Men should provide and protect the family and women should stay home and look after the house and kids while the father is at work,women are much better at looking after children than men because of their maternal instinct and women are just biogically more caring than men.

  • Stay at home mom’s dont have it all. I’m not even allowed to take 3 days to myself to go to Oregon for some whale watching because it’ll be selfish of me to leave my kids. Yet my husband goes hunting or fishing for a week without calling or coming home. I apparently dont have a real job because I make no money, but I work inside and on my 11acres of land. He works a 9-5 job. So no, stay at home mom’s dont get it all.

  • Men don’t have these questions posed to them because job or title is essential to male respect and identity in our society. Men HAVE to work. Women can if they want it but like this discussion they could stay home also.

  • I took executive assistant in school but couldn’t find a job in it that I liked. That’s awesome you work at a winery! I can relate so much to this video. I’m a working mom too. What audiobooks do you listen to?
    Thanks for sharing!��❤

  • As always your words makes so much sense. ☀️

    Also, the cup of coffee youtubers always hold in their hand, why does it look soooo yummy? ��

  • It’s hard being a parent. period. Why must we constantly argue over this shit? At the end of the day, we all doing what we believe is best for our children. There’s never going to be the perfect parent. This is not a real issue. This is the definition of division within the community. It’s not just about women but dads out there too, are constantly feeling the need to justify and get so much validation. Instead, all we’re doing is tearing each other down.

  • It would be ideal if women didn’t have to carry a baby for 9 months, it would be ideal if she didn’t have to breastfeed the baby. But we don’t live in such a world. It’s thus the woman’s job to look after the baby. Nature intended for you to be the caregivers.

  • Being a Mom is hard and trying on a marriage even in the best situations. All of us struggle to find balance but if you have young kids let your youngest get to age 7 and that’s where I’d say things look up.:) I am starting over so my oldest is 10 years old and I’m pregnant again but we had 3 awesome years from age 7-10 where we were able to get back in to having a marriage again where we could get a sitter and go out and carve out more us time. Hope this helps, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.:) Just get through those 7 years.:)

  • Your videos have been such a help to me as I navigate life as a first time mom to a baby who is almost exactly Wilson’s age ❤️ thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • I am a brand new first time mom of a one month old and I’ve been watching your videos since I was in the middle of my pregnancy. You have been incredibly helpful and reassuring. You seem to post exactly what I need when I need it! You are so beautiful, well spoken, and thank you so much for sticking with everything that you are doing..it helps motivate me to do it too.

  • I recently found your channel and have been binge watching! I have twin boys who will turn 1 tomorrow and I’ll be back to work in less than two weeks. I live in Canada so I was lucky enough to have a year long paid maternity leave off with my boys but I’m all kinds of emotional about going back to work.
    I work in HR as well and all your work/mommy life videos have been so inspirational and motivating! Thank you for these, you’re a rockstar working mama!!

  • Let’s look at it from a historic perspective “Hunters” men. “Gathers” women. A little later “farmers” men & women. A little later “factory worker” men & women. A little later “employee” men, “housewife” women. Where did it went wrong? Women worked just like men throughout history, but somewhere along the line it was okay for them to be lazy, and spend the entire day at home.

  • I love u! So true what you said about not looking for validation from other people. I’m now 30 and it’s something I love about getting older! I care sooo much less about validation from others. I feel more free and real and my honest true self. I remember when I was a teenager and in my twenties… exauuuusting how much I used to put my value in the hands of other people. I still care more than I would like, but at least now I know where to search. In myself, not in others!

  • Love your videos. I am a full time student and mom of two boys so ur videos have been helpful. Would you mind sharing the kind of dinners you have. Thank you��

  • If we’re financially well, I’d rather be a business mum/working mum than bein dependent.. It’s ma’ choice.. It’s not bein selfish cuz both u and ur husband will be responsible for raisin’ kids.. Nurturing & takin care of da’ kids is not solely a women’s job.. You just have to multi-task.. Y’all know quality is more important than quantity..

  • Am a mum of now 3 months and your videos makes me feel better. I used to cry coz I had no idea of how to get things in order. thank you Jess. continue doing this.

  • Omg! My Zoe has been soooo clingy this week! She turns two in two weeks. How old is Emma!? Wish I could see her sweet face!!! But I understand! Was this all one day?! Or did it go into the next day?! Great video!!! ♥️

  • Hey, Jess! I just came across your videos! It’s crazy to me that you think you aren’t amazing at all of the things you listed because we all watch you and we are like “DANG! She does it all!” Seriously grace and love shine through your videos! I bet you are the most AMAZING mom! Thank you for sharing all of this with us!

  • Thanks for such an honest video Jess! I love your content and being a sister in Christ, I love your Christian perspective too. Keep it up Xx

  • My advice: when you get home from work, try and do as much as you can before you sit down! When I walk in the door, I put away my work bag, start soaking bottles to wash, prep coffee for tomorrow morning, start anything with dinner, etc. It’s amazing how much you can get done with that last bit of energy when you walk in the door.

  • Something I noticed that might help your routine more, maybe buying an extra seat for the person picking up your children. Then you can leave yours in the car.

    I have a seat, my partner has a seat and also my brother keeps a seat at his house in case of emergencies when my partners is away for work and I’m running late:)

    Love your video, thank you

  • I love how everyone talk endless about moms should stay at home or work but not talking about father. Like he doesnt even exist…or he didnt involve the situation. Funny.

  • Men don’t have maternal instincts or patience to raise children generally their mind wanders and can do basic house tasks but can’t do it all. I tested this with my husband the house would be cleaned but children would be ignored he even once was on the verge of crying.

  • They need there mothe/ father. Parents if they can, need to raise there kids. No one can take care of your kids like you can. Especially during critical years of 1-3.

  • I love watching your videos thank you so much for being so real bc i have taken a lot of advice from your videos and feel more confident in my mom skills

  • I honestly find you so inspiring. I am current pregnant with my first baby and stressing about how I am going to get everything fitted in once baby comes. Seeing you accomplish so much makes me feel confident that I can do the same! Thanks xx

  • Stay at home moms are lazy twats who have rich husbands and refused to go back to work after their kids start school. It’s not a job title, so don’t put “stay at home mommy” as your job in Facebook. It’s not cute, you are unemployed…

  • My partner is incredibly satisfied with his son’s learning skills and also he`s spreading his story to all people. We train our boy ways to read with the aid of this particular studying guide. We used to read some things to him before bedtime, however at this point he chooses his own books as well as reads to us. Research about this reading book by Google. The program’s name is Elena Readoρiz
    nice day

  • Finally a working mom! Very rare indeed. Appreciate your advice. Since being home due to covid I’ve realized how I’ve stressed myself out with school/work mornings. Thanks for the tips!

  • This is �� true for me too as a work at home mama. I’m so glad you shared. Being with the kids 24/7 (homeschool) is a lot sometime. But fricken frozen waffles so I can drink my damn coffee and be in a good mood is PRIORITY numero uno fo sho!!

  • That is crap. I work 40+ hours a week as a single mother of three and my children have learned to be self reliant, appreciative, and successful children. They see me work hard and also mother them…they are well rounded and prepared children.

  • I find what ever puts a smile on your face. Children all they really care about is a healthy stable and happy parents and home. Working mom or stay at home mom as long as you are happy your children will fine.

  • I love this video so much!! You have no idea how badly I wish I’d found your channel a year ago when my son was born. We live far away from all our friends and family and have had no one but each other to turn to in this difficult year when we needed so much help but got very little. Thank you for your honesty and your love. You are amazing!

  • It has been my regular routine to make us of methods and techniques that promises to help someone earn money in a short time period. At that time, one of my friends introduced me to “shocking soto press” you have to check it up on Google. Everyday, my regular earnings is one hundred bucks. Test it personally.

  • You serve really inspiring and great messages, and give off such a joyful spirit that I am now invested in your channel! Please do more like this:) I still find it relatable and I don’t have children just fur babies lol

  • Only about 2% of women will have fulfilling careers, the rest will have jobs. The Public Relations Industry is 64% women who try to use propaganda to flood workforce and keep wages low. These Public Relations women are also representatives of the 1% and have orders to keep the masses busy working and in debt so they won’t know what’s going on. That’s why Trump is president.

  • You shouldn’t have to apologize for taking a break. Life always throws up curve balls. Glad to have a new video to watch though! I loved seeing what you do for a living. the cuddle time with you and your baby and when you husband got home! SOO cute.Loved your singing at the end too haha. Great video girl!

  • As someone who has very little interest in being a mother at this time, I was pleasantly surprised with how entertaining this was! You do so much! You are a superwoman! ❤️

  • I love this video! I connect to so much about you and your flow and energy! You’re motivating me to get back into healthy habits!!! Also? It makes me miss working in an office! (I haven’t in almost 10 years!).

  • Stay at home moms contribute less to climate change. Corporations are destroying the environment, so career women are part of the destruction, otherwise, women need to think for themselves.

  • There are woman who need do a work to have food on the table….
    There are woman who married a rich man and can enjoy raising their kids…..
    There are woman who work since elementary school to build a successful career and work twice harder to jungle between family and job…
    There are woman who has a dump job and just wait to have kids to get the excuse to stay home…
    There are successfull career woman who abandon all it to stay home to take care of a unhealthy kid…
    There are woman who are the bread earner and chose a stay at home dad…
    There are born wealthy woman who don’t need to work and have nanny to raise their kids…
    There are woman who feels it’s her destiny to raise a family…
    There are woman who just choose to not have a family…

    So why are we focusing on only two specific categories? All i can say is when you don’t have the choice, you are usually miserable. I can also predict that when you are financially depend on someone else, you are vulnerable. But not all people have the strength and the chance to have it all…but even when you have it all, it does mean that you won’t have a bad day.

  • Why is this still a debate? If you can stay home and you want to..Go for it! Fuck it’s no one’s choice but your own. I know I am not going to have children, I am also not going to get married. I like being alone and I enjoy working. Also, remember many women cannot stay at home with the kids. Sometimes it depends on if you can.

  • Everybody is different:) My mom stayed home with my 2 older siblings (thru fundamental years) and only started working when child 3 and 4 (me) came along. She took on 2 jobs most days and I will never know how she managed it all. I do remember as a child, frequently yearning for mom (she was gentle & affectionate). I don’t know what (hehe) but I’m guessing it has affected me negatively in some ways. What I do know with certainty, is that both my sister (no.3) and I have benefited from having had a working mom. We are far more independent, driven and adaptable then our older siblings. We became more adept at problem solving and are usually the solution providers in situations. We’re also both better off financially. My older siblings on the other hand always seem to need help and have one problem or another. They’re get emotional in many ways and let the smallest issues get to them. Who can really say what’s best for a child… a selfish mother could do more harm staying home with the kids lol.. Happy Weekend everyone!:)
