4 Benefits of Being Working Mother and Its Effect on Kids

by Team Tenangles

The entire concept of being a full-time mom has changed in the last few years. Not many families enjoy this luxury these days. Many single mothers have to support and take care of children all by themselves. Even in two-parent households, two incomes are needed to stay afloat financially.  Some moms cannot be at home with their kids full time. The biggest and the topmost challenge for working mothers is the guilt of not spending time with their children 24/7. Consequently, they cannot give their children the moments they want to enjoy with them.

For example, working mothers cannot greet and hug their kids when they return from school. They are not able to serve them the food of their choice. They cannot help out with the homework and other activities, and they are not present on every PTA. Great mothers do not fit in any particular mold. Thus, while moms at home bring some blessing to their kids, working mothers have their unique blessing to offer. Working mothers are a blessing to their kids in more than one way that they might even not realize.

Here are a few beautiful blessings that working mothers provide to their kids. If you are a working mother, read on and remind yourself of what a great mother you are.

Kids Love to Solve Problems at Their Own

It is an instinct for any mother to shield their kids from every problem. They leave no stone unturned to solve all issues of their kids so that their kids never have to feel frustration or hurt. Children should learn to solve problems and figure out solutions on their own. Far too many children grow up without solid problem-solving skills. Consequently, when they reach adulthood, they fall apart and cannot face situations when confronted with the first obstacle. The ability to problem-solve is an essential skill that can significantly distinguish a kid being successful and not.

By being not available for part of the day, working mothers cannot handle each situation that arises in day-to-day life. And when the mother is not around to step into every case to fix it, kids have no choice but to figure out the solution. That is a great way to build self-confidence in a child. And, indeed, it is the right step in preparation for adulthood.

Working Mothers Instill Responsible Behavior in Children

For working moms, evenings are short. They only have time to get dinner on the table, throw in a load or two of laundry, and organize everything for the next day. All they have is a packed schedule, even if you are working from home. With the mother’s time being so tight, children often take responsibility.

They engage themselves in the chores and homework on their own because the mother does not have time to nag them for everything. Such children rise to challenge, and their attitude towards life is entirely different. They are grown to be innovative and know when the family has a packed schedule during the week, they have to do their part by getting homework and chores done.

This instills a feeling of confidence in kids, and they feel as if they are an indispensable part of the family unit. Famous Swiss-American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross once famously said that as parents, we need to teach the next generation of children from day one that they are responsible for their lives.

Working Mothers Represent Professionalism

Children are intelligent observers. They watch everything their mothers do. Children see that when a mother wakes up early, ensures everything in the home is in line with the everyday schedule, and goes that extra mile for her job. When a mother helps her children with school projects and activities after a long and tiring day at work, kids recognize her efforts and sacrifice. And when a mother gets a promotion in her job, kids feel proud of her. And, when kids grow up and have their jobs, they want to follow in the footsteps of their mom.

“Children are great imitators. So, give them something they can learn and grow in life.”

Children Benefit from Caregivers other Than Their Mom

We all know that working mothers are dependent on others to take care of their kids when they are working from home. Unfortunately, mothers feel guilty about it.  They think that they cannot take care of their children properly if they are not around 24/7. But, believe it or not, children always need more time to spend and more than one person to take care of them. Children do well in their lives when they have several influences and people who care for them.

Kids benefit greatly from the solid relationships they form with grandparents, babysitters, uncles, and aunts. And they require the mentoring and positive feedback provided by coaches and teachers. By sharing a good bond with various caregivers, kids would have the confidence to go and interact with all kinds of people. A famous African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.


To grow is a virtue. Being a working mother from home, you can contribute to their overall growth. While you can stay at home and spend time with your kids, you can also work and build a successful career.
