Is Staying at Home With Children "Real" Work?
The latest war of words in this year's presidential race http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/mommy-voters-in-dc-talk-careers-staying-home-and-the-economy/ spotlights our continuing national debate about whether or not staying home to raise kids is "real" work. I am not going to enter this fray; however, what I am going to say, as a career coach, is that every one of us has the choice to make over whether to step out of the workforce and concentrate on raising our children, or stay in the workforce and do both. There are a lot of factors to consider; ours is not a society that makes it easy on the family to do both. The input from a career coach can help you make the decision. It is worth your time and effort.
