Hiya lovelieees! Top of the day to you all, so how is the week going? It's been cool for me as the week rolls by.. so wanna ask when did women turn jugglers? Especially for the working mum who juggles between work, kids and keeping the home.
Right now I know of a new mum, yeah I call her new 'cos she has less than a year-old baby and her marriage is less than two years old. After she gave birth, she left her work in order to take care of her son, and now she would like to work again but she is so confused about what to do with her son knowing he needs all the care she can give him 'cos of his fragile nature as a lil lad. She thought of dropping him off at a Creche before running off to work but her mother in-law would have none of that, sighting the case of the recent kidnap of the Orekoya kids by a nanny. Mother in-law has told her to wait till he can start kindergarten before she can work again but she is not too happy about it seeing that the load of catering for the house is becoming too much for her husband.
I also know of a staff in my school, I happened to go with her home one day after the close of work and what I saw baffled me, this lady locked her son of about 2 years old inside the house with the nanny taking care of him with a lock. Probably she wasn't doing that before, the recent kidnap of the Orekoya kids seems to have put mothers on a new level of security with their nannies.
We have heard of many cases of child abuse and kidnapping associated with nannies. So if the employment of nannies goes out of options for the working mum what is to be clan? Should a mother skip/resign from her work just so she can take care of her kids at home until they are old enough to take care of them selves? Please I would like to know your take on this. Feel free to air your views.
