Managing Motherhood - 10 Tips to Make the Most Out of Your Day

Before motherhood came along most women worked in a variety of professions, from managing their own businesses, performing shift work, or just doing long hours or having late nights in general.

By the end of the week exhaustion would set in so the weekend was the perfect time to catch up on much-needed sleep.

But then those women embraced motherhood, had children and any form of sleep became a distant memory. Those blessed weekend sleep-ins were most certainly a thing of the past.

Then there was learning to juggle the cost of living on a reduced income, possibly taking on a part-time job or starting up an at-home business, looking after children, doing the housework, book-work, cooking, cleaning shopping and trying to spend quality time with their partner.

It all sounds too hard to deal with, but it doesn't have to be.

Follow these 10 tips on how to make motherhood more manageable.

Motherhood and Career - How to Juggle Between the Two

I have been a mother for the last 8 years. I gave up my career to be a full-time mother to my children. Motherhood has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience with its share of vicissitudes. Yes, there were times when my sons threw tantrums when I wanted to escape and run away. There were times when I wanted to sleep but had to stay up putting a cranky baby to bed. There were also times when just a full-throated laughter, a smile, or the smell of my baby's skin could melt my heart and lift my spirits. A roller coaster of emotions, I guess, is part of normal motherhood.

Keeping up the daily routine of being a mother, the one question which was always at the back of my mind, "what about my career?" A well-educated MBA, it always tugged at my heart's strings that years, which could be spent in building my career, were flying by looking after kids. It did hurt me to see batch mates and colleagues climb corporate ladders while I was being a mother.

When Motherhood Ruins Your College Friendships

The joys of motherhood can often be shadowed by the pain of ruined friendships. Sometimes motherhood has a way of ruining college friendships. The following is a look at when motherhood ruins your college friendships, and what you can do about it.

Why it happens: The first thing you have to address is why it happens. The biggest reason that being a mom can ruin a college friendship is because if you are a mom, and your friends are not, your lives are on different tracks. They are in the career world, or out at clubs, etc. and you are up to your elbows in laundry, dirty diapers, and finding the right preschool. Your interests and priorities in life are suddenly very, very different. You no longer relate on the same level because you are not longer on the same level. Instead of being able to talk for hours on end, you usually end up sitting around with nothing to talk about. Basically, if you are a mom and they are not, or if they are a mom, and you are not, life is different.

What Are the Social and Ethical Issues Related to Surrogate Motherhood?

Whether or not Surrogate motherhood is ethical and ought to be supported is actually a tricky and hot subject in the current society.

It is one particular issue that can actually draw a line between the modern and the conservative. The issue has been a center of debate in many of the law making institutions in the world. America has been a place for rights, and has actually not been left behind in embracing the rights of women to choose not to give birth and contract the responsibility to others at a fee.

There are many reasons that may actually be given to justify the surrogacy contract. In many societies, there is actually that respect that is given to the process of procreation. At least in most of the religious institutions like Islam, Christianity, Hindu Sikhism Judaism and many others, there is a sanction that is actually given in the holy books. That actually means that there is a justification that marriage as a union should bring forth human beings. There is therefore a good ju…
