To explore employed mothers’ perceptions about influence of their working status on growth and development of their children through non-probability judgmental sampling mothers who were formally employed and were having children between the age of 0–5 years were selected from a single community. A total of twelve mothers who consented were enrolled in the study. Responses revealed that being employed their time spent with children is compromised which is impacting on children's emotional development, feeding practices, attachment and bonding with their children. It is concluded that first year maternal employment may form in-secure attachment; child may develop feeling of fear and insecurity, lack of confidence and a decline in performance at school.
