Women are most likely to sacrifice their career after becoming a parent and the brunt of parenting is mostly left to women. A lot of women find the necessity to engage in politics because they feel disappointed, let down and abandoned by the Government after having a child.
Actually, the needs of working parents are really simple. For instance, it is important for the government to offer more flexibility with working hours. This will invariably make working parents more effective at work and at the same time handle the home front with ease.
Also needed is State support for quality education with more teachers on better pay package to attract qualified people to go into childcare as a career.
Also, there is regularly sending out surveys to parents to find out their challenges. This is important due to life’s dynamics. For example, new challenges have come up as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
