Working Mom Responds to Troll in the Best Way

Attention all Internet trolls, you might want to stay away from working moms in general — and one in particular.

When Irish radio presenter Susan Keogh shared photos of her young daughter Faith on social media, she received a comment from an Internet critic wondering why, if she missed her 4-year-old so much, she didn't just quit her job in order to stay home with her child.

After all, that's so obvious, right?

Keogh didn't take the criticism lightly and posted her response on Twitter, expressing what working mothers all over the world are most likely feeling. Namely, she details, there are many reasons why women "lean in" to the workforce.

"Do I feel guilty?" Keogh writes. "Every day. Sometimes 10 times a day. ... But I work to provide a better future for my daughter."

Not only that, but Keogh writes that she wants to serve as an example for her daughter, who, at the moment, wants to be a "flower lady" when she grows up.

"I want to show her that she can make choices," Keogh continues. "I want her to be confident enough to choose the right ones for her. I want her to choose happiness."
