How can I balance a successful career with motherhood?

Mother + career: That's a toughy! you will need to find a balance. It's not easy, but realizing that being a mother is the responsibility not to be matched by any, you would have to either let your career go or make concession to your motherhood to keep up with the career. It is what your values are that will prevail.

Set a schedule: Figure out how much time is required for homework then set a schedule that includes family and fun time along with the time required to complete homework. This will allow your child to focus on other things and not feel overwhelmed with the amount of time required to complete homework. Setting a schedule will also allow you to remove other activities that may be time consuming and unproductive.
