Had enough of the working mum guilt trip! Had enough of the scrutiny about how much time do we spend with our child questions? Like do we even spend time at the weekends or school holidays with our child? Of course we do, and we would spend even more time if we could, but there… Continue reading Less judgement, more compassion!
