As of this moment, I juggle parenting and my studies. So if you were to ask me if I like it or not. Well! To be Honest It's quite overwhelming and challenging. I don't think People consider Parenting as a job, For most of us it's more like a parental responsibility to raise our children and tend to their welfare. You work around the clock and don't get paid yet all the hardwork and sacrifice is worth it just seeing your kid's little smile that moves mountain.

Unfortunately, for now, I am not doing any work, and do not have a job meant I am jobless. I was the deputy program manager in XY company, and I was managing 30 to 40 engineers I love my job, and I missed those days at a time I had a job.
