For Every Working Mom Who Feels Guilty, Watch This Movie With Your Kids

We enjoyed every bit of this movie – there were moments where we cried, empathized – and it struck me that I am not the only mean mommy on the block.

The last year hasn’t been easy. Days are filled with anxiety, grief, love, fatigue, and the multi-tasking chores never seem to end. I’ll be honest – I was tired, drained, and being present on social media was just very hard. I cringe thinking of the days I did back to back LIVEs while my kids played among themselves – and I guess they just had to deal with a working mother. 

But I will confess that I didn’t have any mom guilt. I am not going to put my dreams on hold because I have worked very hard to build what I have at And I am learning each day how to strike the right balance with work and my kids.

However busy I am – over the weekends we pick a movie and watch it together. And a few weekends ago, we watched The Intern. And my kids were impressed. We enjoyed every bit of it – there were moments where we cried, empathized – and it struck me that I am not the only mean mommy on the block.

Do watch this movie – the kids will have many key takeaways and life lessons to learn from.

Founder and CEO Jules Ostin had previously agreed to a community outreach program where seniors would intern at the firm. Ben impresses everyone and is one of the four hired. This movie is about relationships, work-life balance, being a life-long learner, and more. Just what you will want to talk to your kids about. 

Key Takeaways From The Intern

My kids have always been the biggest supporters of and I wish they remain to see work the same way I did. This movie was just a reflection of my hard work at Kidsstoppress and how finding that balance is hard at times!

1. Dream big – they have been taught not to differentiate between sexes

2. It will be tough but then, what’s not tough?!

3. Perfection is an illusion
