Working Mom Myths

Liza Maria Garcia is the author of “Never Drink Coffee in a Business Meeting”

She’s talking about Working Mom Myths.

Myths  of children’s upbringing from single parent households.

1.Children of Single Parent households academics will suffer due to lack of focus by single parent.

Quite contrary, being a single parent demands much more accountability of time and schedule and in fact this “schedule” teaches children early on the importance of time management.

2.Children of Single Parent households extracurricular lives can’t be full, due to demanding work schedule of single parent.

My daughters are heavily involved in swim team, theater, cooking club, chess and  instrument playing. I made deliberate choices as to where to live to facilitate this and we use Skype/Facetime for in-home lessons.

3.Children of Single Parent households suffer mentally, perhaps having mental health issues due to lack of both parents being together.

We believe in therapy. I practice fundamentals of therapy in my parenting techniques and feel my daughters have a “leg up” in many areas pertaining to mental health.  There is a new normal that all children can become accustom to with deliberate planning and openness to change taught at an early age.
