What is Matrescence and why does every Mother need to know about it?

Matrescence

flexibility is essential for working parents. Pick ups/ drop offs, appointments for you, appointments for your children, there are so many things needed to squeeze into a week and if you don’t have flexible work arrangements it can make it so hard.

It’s great to make changes and evolve as society does, but being consciously aware of how we change those behaviours isn’t as easy as we think.

6 ways to improve your self-image as a mother:

Self Image isn’t just about Physical appearance, think about how confident you are in yourself? Do you feel positive, capable and determined in life? Cultivating a positive self image can make or break you as a woman, so what can we do to improve it?

The importance of flexible working for men.

There is a pervasive stereotype that flexibility is primarily aimed at women, particularly working mothers, as they are seen as the primary caregivers for their children. This is a stereotype that needs to be challenged and ultimately eliminated, as we modernise the way we live and work, men and woman are wanting to become much more equal.
