You cannot fully understand the heart of a mother unless you become one. And to be honest, most of the time I am left in awe whenever I saw mothers succeeding in their chosen fields. Though we are living in a modern society where women are allowed to pave their own career track we all know that there are still some heavy expectations that until now they are carrying on their shoulders. Like raring kids and managing the affairs inside their home.
And one of the realities that we are facing in this modern time is the uprising of “INDEPENDENT” mothers. They are the heroes of their kids as they carry all the responsibilities of both parents, braving all the challenges to make sure that their kids won’t feel that they are lacking.
We asked a number of independent mothers – single mothers – to know their daily struggles and these are what we observe as the most common issue they are facing.
Though money is not everything, we all need it to survive. And as single-parent, they carry the responsibility to put food on their table. Because whether we accept it or not most of the time when the marriage separation did not end well the party who is left with the kids have to step up and provide for the children. And the majority of the cases kids are left with the mothers, therefore, they are the one who bears the financial strains.
Being sole provider for the kids most of the independent mothers work double jobs which make it more difficult for them to divide their time with the kids, her work and herself. And sadly what is being sacrificed without question asks is their time for themselves.
Though we try to convince ourselves that since we are living in a modern time with more liberals and open-minded individuals, we can’t deny that stereotyping is still an awful reality we should eradicate. Judging someone because of a failed marriage is totally unfair but it happens even up to this day. And it adds up to the struggle of these women.
One thing that makes us proud of our business is the intention to help those independent mothers. We design our services from Regular Housekeeping to One-Off Cleaning, to End of Tenancy Cleaning thinking about those people who need a dependable partner like these single-mothers to take care of their family in terms of home cleaning. By taking care of their home we somehow help them manage their precious time so they can spend it to more valuable activities like being with their kids or having time for themselves. But this is us. This is what we do for these independent heroes, the single-mothers.
How about you? What will you do for them? It is true that we cannot fully understand the heart of a mother unless we become one. But we can help create a society that cares and empathize with them especially that we have now INDEPENDENT mothers braving double effort for their kids. Be kind, little empathy won’t hurt you.
