I work full time, and feel guilty full time!

I work full time, mob-fri 8-5. My daughter stays home with my sister in law. Her dad and I are no longer together so on weekends she goes with him. I feel really guilty because I don't get to spend ally of time with her. Any similar experiences?

Re: I work full time, and feel guilty full time!

  • Sorry to hear this. I really struggled going back to work with DS, and was able to work out a flexible schedule with my boss. I work Mon-Thurs 7:30-4:00, and every other Friday switch off 8:00-4:00, or 8:00-12:00, so a half-day every other Friday. I have a desk job, so I don't take lunch breaks. My situation is different because DH and I are together, so I do get weekends with my son, but I know the feeling of not getting enough time with your child. 

    I hope you're able to work something out. Good luck!

  • Is it possible for you to have every other weekend? It seems a little unfair that you don't get any of your time off with her. I would petition for that.
