Dismantling the Productivity Lie That Parents Must Do It All
with Blessing Adesiyan, CEO of Mother Honestly
Time Left to Book
Being at home is not the same as being present at home. What are three things parents can do now to do less?
About the Workshop
Parents often tell Blessing they feel like they’re failing their kids if they aren’t caring for them personally, and that it’s easier to do things themselves so they are done “right.” But studies find that that pressure leads to faster burnout and lower work-family balance, which in turn leads to lower career ambitions, especially for moms.
What do we do? Blessing shares a multi-cultural perspective on getting help, what help to get, and why it’s (definitely) worth it.
Bring a cup of coffee or glass of wine and be ready to turn your camera and mic on, if you like, to discuss with other working parents. Kids and distractions welcome.
