Daisy goes on to stress how daunting it is to be a new parent and working while maintaining balance between the two. She said her favorite chapter in her book is the one on how we need to manage our emotions and to not feel guilty for working instead of staying home with your children. Daisy says that there are a lot of parents who have problems with switching between work mode and being a parent especially if you work remote from home.
