mommy wars

If you didn't see the spot on ABC, then check out this link listed below and read the article. This debate has been all over the news.

I think this subject is cause for some well deserved debates and entirely different view points to surface. A good reminder would be- that we just watched Sandra Day O'Connor, a former Opt Out mom who choose to stay home with her children for 5 years mid career, retire from a seat on the Supreme Court of the "United States" to be with her ailing husband. Isn't it time to make straight forward full time career paths only one of a number of excellent options for any mom.

There are a whole group of sahm's who are millionaires as a result of a business they started while home raising their children. When you take the female vs male pay compensation in today's job market, sometimes you really have to rethink your career path.
I am fortunate to be home with my children and wouldn't trade this time in their lives(or mine) for any other experience. My thought is, I have the rest of my life to make my dreams come true and to climb a corporate ladder, if I so choose. It is no insult to my children that I am not working outside the home. I certainly don't look down on a mom who has made the decision to be a working mom, if that is the choice she has made. This is what you do to make your family functional on all levels.
