Former Spice GirlÂ Victoria Beckham presented a collection at the New York Fashion show, and critics said she looked a little disheveled and unhappy. Â That said, they couldn’t be more wrong. Â “Look, if people want to say I’m miserable, then so be it,” she said, according to UsMagazine.com. Â “I’m really not. Â I have a lot on my plate. Â I’m not going to lie about it, I’m tired. Â I’m really tired, but I’m also very happy with my life.” Â Victoria has four children with soccer star husband David Beckham and the newest addition to the family, Harper Beckham, is only seven months old. Â “I’m not getting much sleep at all,” she added. Â “Harper’s not sleeping that great, and I’ve been taking Skype business calls throughout the night, too, because of the collections. Â I’m up with the baby as all mums are, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Â There’s not a team of people doing it for me.”
What are the benefits of being a working parent?
Being a good parent and a good employee is a balancing act, but so is life in general. Â That said, being a working parent has some great benefits. Â Cupid has some tips:
1. Living standard:Â By having a job with a steady income, you’ll be able to provide your children with their basic needs without stress on yourself or your budget.
2. Role model: Young children are always mimicking adults, so by showing them that you’re a hard worker and goal-oriented, they will hopefully follow in your footsteps.
3. Balance: Learning to balance everything on your plate as an employee and a parent will give you a sense of duty and accomplishment. Â You’ll learn to prioritize what’s important in your life, and hold on to things that are the most meaningful to your happiness.
