Woman Makes ‘Mom Resume’ To Highlight Why Motherhood Is A Full-Time Job

Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or one who works full-time, we can all agree that parenting is a tough job, right? No one teaches you how to be a good parent or tells you all the skills you need to learn beforehand; you just have to learn on the fly and hope for the best.

After seeing how the 2020 pandemic affected working women—especially mothers—one woman shared her resume on social media. It wasn’t just her normal CV, though! It was only the skills she’d learned as a new mother.

Women Are More Affected By The Pandemic Than Men

With schools being closed and childcare facilities operating at limited capacity, reduced hours, or not at all, working mothers were relied on to be the primary source of care for their families.
