You are not the only one that has to do everything. Let go of the reins and let others help you. Build your support network. Start delegating some of your responsibilities to others at work and at home. Delegate leg-work duties to your employees. Delegate household duties to your family.

Find reliable childcare. Create a carpool system to share the responsibility of carting the kids around with other working parents. Ask your nearby family members to chip in with the kids and errands. Keep reminding yourself that you alone should never bear all the responsibility at work or at home.
