I stumbled on this story on Instagram. A lady shared CCTV clips of her 2 year old son being assaulted by her domestic staff.
When heartbreaking events like this occur, mum guilt and self blame may naturally creep in especially if for working mothers.
Guilt is something that all mums experience. It comes with the job. Guilt about feeding them the right things, at the right time. Guilt about letting them watch too much TV or leaving them in the care of strangers.
Please note, this is in no way your fault. You just need to put better structures in place.
