Sometimes feel guilty as a working mother: Parker

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker feels guilty about spending time away from her family because she enjoys her work.

The actress admits there is constant "conflict" in her life because though she is a devoted mother to son James, 13, and twins Tabitha and Loretta, seven, who she has with husband Matthew Broderick - she still enjoys her life outside of the home.



"[Parenting] changes you in every possible way, but there's a struggle, there's a conflict that exists, which is you also want to maintain this other part of your life.

"The reason it's a conflict, usually, is that you like the other life, too," she said.

"Someone [told me] that working mothers who work outside of home feel guilty about work because they like the work."

But the former "Sex and the City" star acknowledged some working parents experience very different feelings because they don't love their jobs.

"That's the issue. For many working women in this country who are working two and three jobs, it's not guilt that they suffer, because they don't love their work. It's worry, concern, and time away from their children. It's such a different experience," the actress said.
