Beside economic factors, the mother’s participation in employment is also influenced by social, political and demographic (Bower, on Reynolds et. al, 2003). In this case, self-control is important because the decision of a mother to act in the face of variety of circumstances few would least affect the atmosphere of the household itself. Awareness of the importance of self-control will make the mother trying to raise her self-control, one of which is doing Yoga exercises.
