Child Care News for Parents & Carers
March 4, 2015
Goodness it's March and officially Autumn already and we've only just got past the summer holidays. March 8th is International Women's Day and this year's theme is "Make it Happen", so we ask what will you make happen this year? If you've just gone back to work and are struggling with Mother Guilt, then our article gives you a bit of a pep talk. You're great. You have nothing to feel guilty about.
International Women's Day is March 8

What will you make happen this year?

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated globally every year on March 8. Each year, the Australian National Committee for UN Women hosts International Women's Day events across Australia. Taking place in the first week of March, these events are attended by more than 8,000 people each year. The theme for this year is "Make it Happen".

In 2015 IWD commemorates Beijing +20, a global campaign celebrating progress towards gender equality since the landmark Beijing Platform for Action was signed in 1995 by 189 countries.

While we have come a long way, we still have a long way to go. Beijing + 20 also highlights what still needs to be done, so we don't have to wait another 20 years to achieve gender equality.

Mother guilt:
are you feeling it?

Stay-at-home mums feel it too

The thing about mother guilt is that it's absolutely and utterly built in to every mother's psyche, whether she is working or not. Women, much more than men, are pre-disposed to assume responsibility for everything in their lives, especially when it has anything to do with their children or family.

Women are natural takers of responsibility. Men find it so much easier to compartmentalise their life, while women are more likely to let everything merge. And while it certainly doesn't mean that men don't care about their families, they may well disappear off to work in the morning and not think about them for more than a split second for the entire day.

Women think about them constantly.

So if you've recently gone back to work after being on maternity leave, or even after you've been on holiday, then the likelihood is that that niggling feeling of guilt for not being with your children is grating away at you.
