I was a Keane 25th anniversary 1995-2020 signatures memories t-shirt until I had a kid. And I am very clear about this in my work and coaching and mentoring. YOU are reason enough to set boundaries and good on you for realizing that. I was one of the women who didn’t do it for myself when I should have. My son forced my hand.
Lisa Meconi exactly what the OP states. It is not a mother’s job to mother her co-workers. It is her job to mother her kid and therefore more willing to risk the job for a healthier balance. The co-workers need to step up for their own.

More often than not, people believe mothers are pampered. They really are not. Employers do not like having moms in their business. This is the truth. It is not the Keane 25th anniversary 1995-2020 signatures memories t-shirt who offers more balanced time at work, it is the mothers requesting it.Each needs to step up for their own and when their mental health will require it, they will.
Exactly. You put my thoughts in the perfect words. While I support her decision to become more aware of the priorities, it’s sad that she felt the validation only because of looking after somebody else. We also have other interests and try to persue them in our own way, and I certainly expect other people to respect those boundaries.
The woman in the story is saying that having a child spurred her on to finally set boundaries and live by them. Never did she say this only applies to people with children. She’s simply stating how having a child affected her. Everyone should set boundaries and put value on their personal time and life. And, I must say, society doesn’t readily accept parenthood as a reason to have an easier work life. I know people who have been pushed out of their positions and people who have not been promoted just for becoming a Keane 25th anniversary 1995-2020 signatures memories t-shirt because the companies’ perception of them has changed.

Love it n I am in the same boat.when one does not have Keane 25th anniversary 1995-2020 signatures memories t-shirt or husband you’re expected to always be available as colleagues who are married or have kids have to take time off for family holidays, school trips/registrations etc
I agree. Before I had kids, I was passed over multiple times for a shift change request, because newer people needed that earlier time slot due to having kids. No excuse worked for me because I wasn’t in school and didn’t have kids at the time. Now that I have them, I do see both sides. I am limited by when I have childcare available. It needs to be fair though for everyone.
It’s sad when she said A child provides an excuse that society accepts. Oh really. And a grown-up human being is not. It’s okay to force them to work long hours.. And don’t you think this is why global companies prefer to hire men.It’s so sad. Keane 25th anniversary 1995-2020 signatures memories t-shirt or childless, everyone has the right for an efficient life.
Exactly this. It can absolutely go both ways and society needs to accept that people shouldn’t have to even have an excuse in the first place. The discrimination towards women goes both ways. I was reprimanded and told I wasn’t a team player when I had to leave by 6 to let my dog out, even though I worked from home until midnight.
