Effects of a Working Woman’s Absence from Home

Gaining autonomy is something many women want today, both physically and financially. In addition to the financial security from having more than one income, many women had a career before and will again after their children are born. With a tighter economy, women are stepping up in large numbers to provide for their family. Leaving the security of the home by entering or returning to the workplace or starting a home-based business is a scary step for some women.

The entire family has to adjust to the changes in routine or their individual responsibilities. The world outside the family home can be very different. It is not always easy for a woman to leave her home to pursue her dream or increase her family’s income while raising a family. She not only has to compete with men for opportunities in the workplace but may also feel the need to prove herself as a super mom: a dedicated mother, a loving wife, a loyal homemaker and an efficient employee.

Every family member is affected by the absence of the primary homemaker, even if the workplace entered is a home-based business. The working mother is busy with work, children, her spouse, other family members and household work. The family sees the changes and has to adjust, just as the mother has had to adjust to the new balance of demands on her time. Small disappointments at home or work can become problems if there is too much imbalance. By adapting to the changes, making adjustments and embracing new roles, the whole family will find balance together.

  1. i would really like to achieve financial freedom in just a few years ;`;

  2. A satisfied happy mother more than balances the negatives pointed out in this article. A frustrated, unhappy woman damning the day she was born a woman and got stuck with a child will probably not be providing all the niceties noted in the artcile even if she is home 24/7. Working mothers make an effort to spend quality time with their children. trapped at home mothers are more likely to want everybody to be grateful for their “sacrifices”.
