Here's a documentary for any local mum who struggles to balance office and home life.
TV3 presenter Karen Koster is bringing working mothers into focus this week with the release of her show examining their personal struggles.
The mum of two has opened her home life to cameras for an emotionally-honest documentary, Mammy Guilt: True Lives, which airs on TV3, Wednesday 17th January at 9pm.
TV presenter, Karen Koster, has two small children who go to crèche and one on the way. Despite her perceived glamorous red carpet life, Karen constantly struggles with the guilt of being a working mother and worries she is doing neither job as well as she could.
In this very personal film, Karen explores the guilt and juggling that many parents experience as part of daily life and looks at the myths and fears around childcare.
We’ll see her meeting all kinds of working mums,including those who live away from their children for work, childcare workers and a home-schooling mum.
Karen also interviews American Professor Jay Belsky who published a study in the 1980’s entitled ‘Infant Daycare – A cause for Concern’. He believes that parents could be harming their children by sending them to crèche, and Karen is going to be studying his views with her own outlook.
With lots of tears, laughter and many parents worst fears confronted, Karen will bring viewers on her own journey of facing the guilt and fears of juggling work and children.
Mammy Guilt: True Lives airs on TV3 tomorrow night, Wednesday 17th at 9pm
