Do you think a woman can manage both her career and home simultaneously? In my view , yes, most of the women can manage both their career and home efficiently. They are balanced and can handle any situation easily. What are your opinions regarding this..?

As a whole, I think most people can rise to the occasion, whatever the situation, but not everyone. I wouldn't say that all women can handle both career and home efficiently. I had a boss once, a woman, who talked with me quite often about how hard it was for her to balance home and career. She had two small boys about the same age as mine. I really couldn't help her much because, at the time, I purposely chose to remain in a low-priority job so that it wouldn't be too much trouble if I had to leave work suddenly in case of accident or illness of one of my kids, or if I had to stay home from work to be with them, take them to doctor's appointments, etc. Handling a career and a home, complete with small children, is VERY hard. To be in a career where your presence is essential is hardest on women with children. My youngest son had several problems, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), plus 13 allergies and asthma. I often had to leave work to pick him up from school because he was sick or stay home to take him to the doctor's office or because we spent the night in the hospital emergency room. That doesn't bode well in any job, least of all one where your presence is essential! It's easier when you have a lower-priority job, one where work would be able to continue without your presence every now and then. A career is a full-time job. Parenthood is a full-time job. Home is a part-time job. So, when kids are involved, that's 2 1/2 full-time jobs you have going on and it will wear you down! I know from personal experience! I applaud those who have managed to balance career and home but I bet every one of them has felt emotionally or physically exhausted plenty of times! I didn't feel completely comfortable until I began working from my home. That made life so much easier on me! I was there when my children needed me and could work at midnight if I had to or just wanted to.

Managing career and family life itself is great. I feel so great about you that you used to manage all these in spite of your tough work. Good that you are working from home now. Yeah, it is true that every woman or most of the woman do feel emotionally or physically exhausted many times. I appreciate you in many ways for managing yourself at home looking after your kids and at work too. I pray that you must always be comfortable and happy. All the best.

I go with your idea, woman now a days can compete to men. What I mean she can handle multi task for home and at work. She is professional to deal with her career and so with her family. Manage home needs and the kids even tho she has many hectic schedule in her job. Now a days women can do the work of men thats why they can do whatever work to be done. Not like before that women will stay in the house and only men can work. Today there is already an equality of both.

I go with your idea , woman now a days is profeesional and practical about it. She can do her work and manage her home smoothly. She cope up every activity because some of them are single parent doing the job or its because their spouse is far away from them. Or even tho thier partner is there still they are the good budgeter and manager of the house even they have hectic schedule still they can do it. This woman is a good leader to all that can handle multiple task in the house and at work.

I can see the difference a modern woman can do in this fast tracked society, there was the need to keep her family's financial needs and balancing that with the family's need. She is strong in all her ways and she manage to make the most of it, I hailed and respected every woman I know especially the mothers I salute them all. These are heroes I believe in these modern times and age.

It depends totally on that woman. There are some people who are strong enough to face every single problem comes in their way but some of them who can't even take one. So, if the woman is brave enough to take this challange, she can do that with no problems.

Yes, a woman can be wife, mother and have a career same time, if she have near , a real man, who know support and understand she. But i must to say, that at least depend a lot of what kind of woman she is, if know to manage all, if know to make all to be all good...never let shes family for shes career, or career for family. need to be diplomatic person.
