As a working mom, your childless co-workers may or may not have thought this about you as a working parent and co-worker.

1. How Come She Gets Flex Time?
I am of the school of thought that companies should offer flex hours, whether you’re a parent or not. I understand that not everyone may deserve that privilege, but if employees are stuck to their desks and jobs 24/7, eventually, they will quit. Burnout is not pretty, and if you are a working parent, you know how hard that work-life balance is. Everyone needs it.
