Mother is a very important element at home due to her diverse role of maintaining the home along with the fulfilment of the requirements of its members. A role of a working mother is still complex as it is characterised by the absence of freedom and presence of dual role. In the globalised world, with in the increase of competition in the job market the requisites of a working mother are neglected as it can always be replaced by the competent unmarried woman or a man. The reason for women’s work is not just the economic freedom but also for individual status, fulfilment of psychosocial needs Kapur (1974). The paper highlights the various issues and concerns of 100 working mothers employed in 20 government Schools at Mangalore City which are selected using Multi Stage Sampling method.
