FINDING THE MIDDLE GROUND

I am a woman in my forties and I have been a stay-at-home mother for almost two years now. I used to work for a bank, but I took a break after my first child was born. However, now I feel as though I can get back to my career. I don’t think I can dedicate to an eight-hour shift, since I need to stay at home with my family as well, but I really can’t stay idle at home. Would a part-time job help me? What should I do?

Dear Nandini,

First off, don’t worry! You’re not alone in this predicament; many working mothers face a similar dilemma when they decide to go back to work after maternity leave. Bouncing back is difficult, because there’s usually a lot on your plate. It is understandable that you don’t want to work full-time when you have to look after a child as well. However, working from home is one alternative, and it won’t be taxing because it usually requires only about 5-6 hours of work. You can also enroll in content writing courses that are carried out over the internet and will not require you to be physically present. Several other courses include working as a translator, medical transcriptionist and web developer or web designer! However, remember that most of these jobs require you to pass an examination.
