If I told you there was a way you could reduce your workload at home and the emotional labour for your family, and it was FREE, would you do it?
Speaking to many of my mum friends, it sounds good in theory, but no, they wouldn’t. Because it’s a mum’s job to be everything to everyone and if you’re not doing it all, are you even a proper mother?
