Hire a Nanny, Keep Your Sanity and Become a Better Mom

It is aptly said that “It takes a village to raise a child.” However in this day and age of nuclear families it has basically become the responsibility of the newly minted parents to take care of the child along with earning a living as well. It is hectic and then some. Most often than not, it majorly becomes the responsibility of the mother to raise the child.

What’s more, in this era of doing everything the right way and by yourself, with titles of SuperWoman and SuperMom abounding all over the place, the poor hapless mother tries to do her best for her baby all by herself. Looking after a child is a challenging task with sleepless nights and thousands of chores. Plus, women also have this in-built pressure of being the best so that they can also be a SuperMom who does everything for the child, also looks after the house, manages the sundry chores and is a rockstar in her professional corporate life as well.

Wanting to do everything so that one can measure up to the titles of being an achiever in the office, proud hostess in the house, a happy smiling mother and a caring wife is in reality a recipe for disaster. Apologies for breaking the bubble but if one signs up for all the different roles then they are just asking for a nervous breakdown to happen in the near future.

Apart from that, you are also going to be harried, stressed out and go totally bonkers the moment any small unexpected thing happens, for which you hadn’t planned or prepared. So, what is the solution – hiring a nanny.

Yes, you are the mother and no one can look after the child as well as the mother, that is very true. So, you have a lot of guilt factor creeping in when the mere mention of a nanny crops up. However, the sad reality is that you can’t be the best always 24X7. Human bodies need their share of rest, rejuvenation and relaxation.

A well-trained nanny can look after the apple of your eye for a few hours to start with, under the supervision of a family member, of course. This will give you a much-needed break in which you can catch up on your sleep or just indulge in some well-deserved “me-time” to recharge your batteries. Believe us, when we say that after recharging your batteries when you meet your child, you will be a much better mother because your mental and physical needs will be taken care of.

You will be happy after getting your break and subsequently, your child will also be happy. Your patience will no longer wear thin with a child who demands your attention and doesn’t always heeds your words.

So, pause the guilt-factory for a while and think about yourself for a change. As a mother, you want the best for your child always, so how about wanting a happy mother for your child as well? So, how to turn harried, worried and stressed out mothers into happy mothers? By giving them a well-deserved break and some indulgent and relaxing “me-time” at least some time, every day. So, hire a nanny, keep your sanity and become a better mom!
