Mother Skipped Daughter's Award Ceremony, But Her Reason Is The Real Story.

Having children and raising them to become a force for good is one of the toughest challenge that a parent can tackle. It gets even more difficult when you're working and you have to balance the responsibility of your career and the responsibility to your children. So obviously, there are times when tough choices are necessary.

Kristen Hewitt publicly discussed a parenting choice she made, and she knew full well that not everyone would see things her way. But she certainly didn't anticipate all the backlash she would end up getting. This just proved that when it comes to parenting, everyone has different opinions, and what might be right for one parent, isn't right in the eyes of another.

Kristen is 41 and a working mom. As a reporter, she's covered the Miami Heat for Fox Sports for over ten years and won two Emmy awards. She's also an entrepreneur and a blogger on the side, so it's obvious that her career is very important. But when she started having kids, she had to make a few adjustments in her life.

Kristen's job required her to cover the Miami Heat's home and away games. This meant that she had to travel a lot. But once she started a family, she opted for part-time work so she could cover the home games only. Since she didn't get paid maternity leave either, this sports reporter had to cover the basketball game three weeks after she gave birth to her baby girl, Lila. But she's still making it work eight years later.

Kristen now has two kids at home who are eight and a five years old. Not only does she continue to cover the Miami Heat's home games, but her blog has become a mini-media hit. Kristen is even helping other bloggers start their own businesses. But as her kids got older, her responsibilities as a mom grew. And while her husband is very supportive, some responsibilities have fallen solely on her shoulder.

Kristen had a rough time last December. She had made it through all the work that went on with making the Thanksgiving holiday a success. The following week, her hubby went on a business-related trip, which meant she had to look after the kids. She was also having health problems and was virtually tapped out.
