Abstract: Evidence shows that working mothers in today’s world face several challenges such as work demands, domestic responsibilities, and raising children. This research investigates the difficulties working mothers come across in their daily lives. It particularly looks at working mothers in the educational field in the United Arab Emirates. A small-scale study was carried out using both qualitative and quantitative methods in the form of questionnaires and interviews. The main findings revealed that working mothers do not have a balanced life, and they struggle with constant guilt towards their children. The majority of mothers also felt the need to be more appreciated. Furthermore, findings also identify the strategies they develop, implement, and adapt to overcome these challenges.
