This Working Mom Is Surprised With Messages Of Appreciation
"Thank you." Those are two words that moms don't hear often enough. Maria Reid is a nurse practitioner at United Psychology Center and a mom to five children. She balances her work and education with maintaining her children's schedules and cooking meals for them every night, but she often doesn't feel like it's enough.
"When I have to enroll them at eight weeks, I feel bad. Even the daycare is like, 'Are you sure you don't want to stay home with your child some more?' And I wish I could, but unfortunately, I just can't," says Maria. Maira and her husband Harold both work to support their family. "It's tough mentally because I want to be present for my kids 24/7," she explains.
Primrose Schools, a national early education and child care provider, created an initiative to combat "mom guilt." Watch the USA Today/Humankind video below as her family showers Maria with appreciation...
