Finding the right work-life balance, MST helps a mom regain her son
This is the story of a teenager nicknamed "Ale," who spent long hours on the streets of Chile when no one was home. He is the son of a struggling mother who works long hours as a construction foreman, where thanks to her physical strength, she learned to live in a “tough man’s world” in which she had to defend herself constantly.
I still remember the afternoon when this mother, Fresia, sobbed after recalling her son at a young age crying out of hunger and asking for bread from their neighbor. At that time, Fresia was unable to meet the needs of her son, and she said to herself "never again." To keep that vow, she devoted more time and effort in getting a better job. However, over the years, this brought other consequences and complications. The more effort, time and dedication she gave to her job, the more her children strayed. Ale stopped going to school, spending more time with negative peers and started stealing. The fights at home increased to the point, mom and son weren’t speaking to each other.
