21/9 Power Luncheon: Balancing Parenting Duties & Successful Career
SSBA Luncheon

On Wednesday 21th September, SSBA invited fellow Singaporean Ms. Donna Loo, an expert in parenting, to shed light on the impacts of effective parenting on efficiency and productivity. More than 15 SSBA members and friends gathered during a weekday lunch hour for an inspirational talk by Ms. Loo and exchanged deep insights and personal experiences of the difficulty of balancing parenthood with full-time work. 

Families and businesses have often been treated as naturally separate institutions, whereas we argue that they are inextricably intertwined.  The stress of juggling parenting responsibilities with the demands of work takes a toll on many parents’ personal and professional lives.  Over 50% of all employees report that job demands interfere with their personal responsibilities, while 43% of employees say that their family responsibilities interfere with their work performance, according to a 2007 study from American Psychological Association.

While managing a career and family leaves some parents feeling guilty and frazzled, others seem to be able to effortlessly balance parenthood with full-time work. Parents who are able to raise well-adjusted children while also maintaining a career have to outstrip in parenting communications.
