less work for working moms
Though my three sons are grown now, I was a workingmom throughout their young lives—a teacher, educationalpsychologist, parenting and child expert, consultant, andwriter. I’ve always found great joy in having a career, but I surewish I’d had this guide then to help with the balancing act. Iwould have multitasked less, been “in the moment” more, andmade “me time” a priority. I would have felt more pride andless guilt over my decision to be a working mom. I would havefound it easier to admit that I really loved my work—I still do.I see myself in these pages, and I know that the challenges andfrustrations, the rewards and joys that are explored here will beinstantly familiar to any working mom.As parents, we want to do everything we can to help ourchildren be happy. We hope to nurture them and equip themwith the skills they’ll need to lead fullling lives and to begood citizens of the world. But these days, many parents,working moms in particular, face more pressures than everbefore. We sometimes feel at a loss about what to make apriority, what to let slide, and how to handle the pulls wefeel from so many directions as we try to do our best for ourfamilies and our careers.And while we all strive to be great moms, great employees,great partners, and great friends, we can’t be great at everythingevery single day. What helps is making reasonable choices,nding shortcuts that actually make things easier, acceptingless-than-immaculate homes, and taking advantage of strategies from moms who have been there.The
Working Mom Survival Guide
, written by Suzanne Riss andTeresa Palagano, is a wonderful resource for working moms,offering a repository of tips and tools. Uplifting and inspiring,this book will help you nd perspective and humor in the faceof challenges that might otherwise make you feel like crawlingunder the covers. The information is accessible—you can ipthrough a chapter and pull out the golden nuggets you’reseeking fast. You’ll discover helpful strategies on everythingfrom navigating your career while raising kids to buildingstrong, supportive networks so that you have a safety net wheninevitable crises strike. Time-saving tips you haven’t heardabout before are peppered throughout the book, making itpossible to nd more time to spend with your family.I’ve contributed to
Working Mother 
magazine for many years,serving as an expert source for stories on everything fromraising ethical children to bully-proong your grade-schooler.What I don’t think the editors realize is that I learn from themtoo, both from the magazine and now from this book.Suzanne and Teresa convey a pride in working, in contributingnancially to one’s family, and in serving as role models tochildren that is sure to resonate. They show how being a momcan up your game at work. (After all, do you know a mom whodoesn’t excel at multitasking, planning, and being organized?)They celebrate the fact that working benets your health andboosts your self-esteem. They embrace the ambitious momwho attends her daughter’s soccer practice and also goes for thebig promotion. They remind us that a better title can increaseyour ability to advocate for other working parents. Be prepared:Your self-esteem may soar as you read these pages.I also appreciated the
