Yes the development of the child gets hampered if the personal nurturing of the child from the mother is absent or missing due to work timings of the mother. I have seen that when mother comes from the work, the child is already asleep and when she leaves for the job in the morning, the child is still sleeping. Some times the child would see the mother once in a week or so. What is the use of having the child and not giving time to nurture. The first three years are the wonderful phase of a child which every mother would cherish and enjoy the growth which is not seen in naked eyes. The nuances of his every move are even recorded on cell phones and no mother should ever miss the first step of the child, the first talk of the child, the first walking of the child and so on. All these are golden moments and if the mother misses them citing work at the office means that is useless life as per me.
