Mothers, especially new ones, are pressured so much in their lives, because they have a child to take responsibility for. All of these presumptions may add stress that a new mother is already dealing with from learning how to take care of her baby. Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct”
It must be noted that the high education status among women today allows them to build their respective careers. This essay aims to determine whether a mother’s employment status adversely affects their children. It has been accompanied by renewed concern about the possible impacts of maternal employment on very young children (Belsky,1988). The scope of this essay will cover at least two positive and two negative impacts on children of working mothers. In addition, this paper aims to highlight the challenges faced by working mother and child, as well as methods of circumventing any negative impact to a child’s development as a result of having a working
The choice is yours. Work or children. A combination of the two can only result in one being neglected, and with working mothers, it tends to be the latter. A mother who spends her day at home is fulfilling a woman’s role in life, and has many positive effects on her children. Under some circumstances a mother can work part time on condition that this does not interfere with her children.
13 Reasons Why Working Mothers Are Much More Productive Than People Realize Juggling a career as well as a family is not easy, but somehow working mothers manage to do it. According to studies by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, they also tend to be highly productive, both at home and the office. In fact, moms with two or more children were found to be the most productive of all (https://research.stlouisfed.org/wp/2014/2014-001.pdf). This is quite interesting as people generally assume that the demands of motherhood make women less productive employees. In fact, studies have shown that there is a so called “motherhood penalty” because of this wrong assumption (http://www.unc.edu/courses/2006spring/geog/203/001/motherhoodpenalty.pdf).
Once a baby is born and a woman enters motherhood, her maternal instincts come naturally, either right away or over time. The one major problem with that is because becoming a mother comes with some unrealistic expectations to be a perfect one as well. Mothers, especially new ones, are pressured so much in their lives, because they have a child to take responsibility for. All of these presumptions may add to the stress that a new mother is already dealing with from learning how to take care of her baby. Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct” way.
DAYCARE, SCULPTING the FUTURE Todays’ fast paced life style and the need for both parents to work to make ends meet seems to have created the daycare dilemma. The reality is that parenting - the most important job a woman can have - is not valued enough. No one should ever feel like she is "only a mom" – but should be more highly valued than any other profession. No job is as important; no job has the possibilities for improving our world by raising up the capacity to love and trust others. Although studies show the negative effects of daycare on young children as they grow-up in these conditions are not beneficial to their future.
1. Outline of Major Points • A mother is not only thinking about how she mothers, but also about the larger cultural, political and social context within which her mothering takes place. • The women’s movement of the 1960s and 1970s focus on giving women civil liberties such as reproductive choice, workplace rights, and protection from domestic violence. It led to professional, economic, and personal opportunities. • Journalist Judith Warner examines the cultural of American motherhood.
An unexpected teenage pregnancy can negatively affect the mother for many reasons. A teenage mother must be prepared “to financially support and raise her child” as having to pay for a baby is expensive. A new baby is expensive and minimum wage jobs will not be enough to pay for a baby unless there are other financial means of support. In An Invisible Thread, Maurice’s mother had to go to dangerous jobs to financially support herself which negatively affected her health. Many mothers find it hard to graduate high school with a new baby, much less finish college which will later lead to financial issues(Campbell 10).
Lack of Parental Involvement in Education There is a great problem in education these days and the lack of parental involvement in their child or student’s lives are to blame for the negative effects that educational institutions go through. There are many contributions to bad grades and many student’s failing exam scores. Positive study habits and tips are not enforced by one’s parents or guardians in and out of the classroom. There is also the lack of developing relationships between a child or student and the parent, there is no communication that is involved that could possibly help strengthen relationships and build a positive bond. Some parents are just unaware of the negative consequences of not being involved in their child’s education.
These representations and expectations of motherhood continuously change as they adapt to the changing socio cultural context (Porter and Kelso, 2006 as cited by (Goodwin, S., & Huppatz, K.,n.d.). Through research, diversity of women’s experiences of pregnancy, birth, child rearing, care work, and familial roles and responsibilities has been established resulting to the de- naturalization of motherhood and the opening up of the categories woman/mother (Goodwin, S., & Huppatz,
