I am struggling with being a part time working mom: help!

Please Don’t judge me BUT I’m having a really hard time transitioning from being a stay at home mom to a part-time working mom I agreed with the job that I’m at to work 26 hours a week but for some reason this is week two and they scheduled me 31 hours for the next two weeks I said I was gonna work it and not cause any issues but I did mention it to the manager that I agreed to a set number of hours and I kinda wanted to stick with that also I HATE working I miss my children so much and I really wanna be home with them also my 9 yo who has ADHD & anxiety has been having a very hard time and I think that is making me wanna quit working because I just hate seeing him struggle he calls my phone leave me messages and I just feel bad but on the flip-side I know my spouse can’t keep up with all of our needs and bills with the way the inflation has hit so I can’t be selfish & stay home when I know the income that I’m making is helping our family but I think about quitting all day long

What about a stay at home job?

If everyone is really unhappy with the situation, you could always become a daycare. Where I live you get 800 a month per child full time and you are allowed 2 kids if you run a license not required day care.

Look into a call center job. Most are wfm since covid and pay well :slightly_smiling_face:

It took me a couple of months to transition after maternity leave. It certainly takes time, so be patient. If after a few months you’re still feeling the same, then maybe weigh your options… but change, especially big change takes time to adjust to.

It is absolutely HARD to transition and you will probably struggle a lot in the beginning. But you have every RIGHT to set boundaries with your job, and if they don’t respect that you find another!

Give it time. As a former SAHM myself, I understand where you’re coming from. It’s difficult getting into the swing of things. Once you all get into the routine, it’ll be so much easier. Maybe do something fun as a family once a week. That way it’ll give everyone, especially the kids, something to look forward to. It doesn’t have to be anything over the top or expensive. Maybe have a movie night and make a special snack, or something like that. I’d definitely stay on top of your hours though. Explain to management that you need specific hours, but are willing, if able, to pick up more in the future. You definitely don’t want them to keep increasing them if it’s going to become a hindrance on your family.

You agreed to 26 hrs. Stick with it. They will work you 46 if you let them. If it went the other way, you only were available for 21 hrs after agreeing to 26, they would have an issue with it. Stay strong and just like any relationship, keep your boundaries.

That last part that part where u state u know your hubby can’t keep up and needs the extra help with the economy, inflation etc etc. Thats HOW u keep doing that’s how u suck it up and keep pushing through because your family YOUR PARTNER needs you too. And then you do everything you can to spend as much time as you can when not at work with your children. It will get better and it will get easier. Good luck

I’m sorry your going through this!! Can u possibly do your job from home??? Idk if you’d b interested but medical reports/transcription hospitals n Dr’s offices hire all the time n sometimes coding too, hiring workers at home. I really hope u can find your peace.:heart::heart:

Adjustment periods are always hard on everyone. The main thing is, if your made it clear on set part time hours do your best to stick with them. You and your child will both adjust in time but it will take time. Just talk to your child, show the hands on the clock of when you’ll be home each day. Give him reassurance that he will be fine while your away and you can both do something fun together when you get home. Also, speak positive about your job around him - this will help him adjust too.

It’s not selfish. No greater feeling in life to be a mom and homemaker. The world we live in makes it impossible. I feel robbed of not being able to be there for mine also. I will give you only this advice. If it’s financial reasons for you working, cut back on every single thing you can to help ensure it stays part time for as long as you can. Those babies will be all grown in a blink

Time will workit out. It’s good for you and it’s helping your spouse and your kids are like that because they ar euse to seeing you 24/7. Your doing a great job just know that.

Is there any way for you to work while they are in school? I have been blessed to stay home with my kids as well, but I think when you get your first paycheck, it will feel good having a little Independence. Sending hugs

Maybe start a business from home. Do housecleaning jobs on your hours…pet sitting or even do a daycare or babysit in your home. Find contract or choose your own hours type job. Also,if do well with being pregnant…could do a surrogacy to fill bank acct while helping someone create a family. Inclusive Surrogacy or Expect Miracles are great ones. I just finished my first one and it is a great experience!

Don’t worry most people think about quitting while at work. However stick to the 26 hrs so you need to speak up. In my experience they will keep adding on hours if you don’t say anything.

Part time hrs are usually up to 32 hrs per week - so maybe the job misrepresented itself to you.

It can be hard to adjust. Many people think about quitting their jobs every day. Stay strong. You’ll get used to working and your kids will get used to you working too. I would ask about getting your hours trimmed back down to 26. When you get to 32 hours a week, many places consider that full time these days. If they boost you there, start asking about receiving benefits. If they say you don’t get them unless you’re full time, then ask to go back to the previously agreed upon 26 hours per week. They are pushing you past what they agreed on. Probably because you haven’t said anything.

Say something now! If the person who hired you agreed to your 26 hours, they are only pushing you to 31 hours because you aren’t speaking up for yourself.

Be glad you got to stay home for a while and only have to work part time. I had to go back to work after 6 weeks at a 10-hour a day job. It’s so tough leaving your child, but you’ll get inured to it after a while. Plus your kids are learning social and educational skills & making friends. Look at situations around the world to feel incredibly fortunate.

Many opportunities for working from home if you’re able to keep kids occupied while working. Businesses desperate for good help. If you can’t get hrs you signed on for, might find spot elsewhere. Nothing wrong with looking, but give yourself time to adjust to being away from kids. It will be good for them, your family and you - just a bit awkward at first.

Your a good parent but need to put your foot down in regards to your availability. Once you agree to do the extended hours they’ll keep giving you them. Say no and stay strong. Once your in the flow your kids will adjust as well.

And so, are any of the kids old enough to work? Contribute?
