Most mums I meet struggle to find enough time to do all the things they need and want to do. It is one of the greatest challenges most mums face, and having to juggle so many different roles and responsibilities leaves them experiencing a range of emotions including frustration, guilt and resentment.

If you struggle with time management and it often leaves you feeling unhappy, this quarter’s Mums’ Struggles Made Simple [MSMS] can help to improve your situation. I would like to invite you to complete this survey so I can understand the issues and challenges you face when it comes to time management.

The solutions to this survey will be posted to my blog in two parts – the first on 19th November and the second on 17th December.  All information shared by you will remain anonymous. I will not share your specific details with any other party.
