Happy Mother’s Day – Why Women Have it Harder

Why Women Have It Harder

It amazes me how much more – exponentially more – women today do than in generations prior. My wife Sue works as a psychotherapist while organizing the lives of our three children and taking care of our home. It is a huge task. Every day I marvel at how she plans her day, like an air traffic controller managing continual incoming and outgoing flights; only the flights Sue must control often come in unannounced. Which kid needs to be picked up when and where? Whose day is it for carpooling? When is lacrosse practice? What can she make for dinner tonight? When can she grab a moment to check email?

….. and the holidays add even more to her over-stuffed calendar!

This is the life of the modern working mom. It is also the life of the working dad who has assumed responsibility for most of the child care and housework, but in general it is a woman who is both the primary caretaker and a wage earner.

This Mother’s Day, take a moment to reflect on how much that special woman in your life has helped you become the person you are today…. and be sure to tell her! How about making her a special dinner – who wouldn’t like that?!
