Reentering the workforce after having children: The Internal War Women Wage with Themselves

Forget about the mommy wars - the supposed battle between stay at home and career oriented moms. Watch out for the battle going on closer to home: The internal debate of deciding which option is right for you.

As a Therapist and Career Counselor. I've seen firsthand how hard women are on themselves. Mothers are constantly asking themselves impossible questions: How can I be the best parent if I choose to work outside the home? Could I work Part-time and have the best of both worlds? What choice will bring me the most happiness?

Here's my advice: Don't let fear paralyze you. Instead, let the fear guide you to good decisions about whether a job outside the home is right for you and your family- at this point in your life. Women tend to get caught up in the notion that this is a decision they only have to make once. When, in fact, your situation as well as your motivation to work outside the home may change as time goes by.

So, where do you begin this process? You start by taking a close look at your motivation. Is going back to work right for you at this time in your life? Being a mom is a full time job. Moms work 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. You already have a lot of responsibility. Are you ready for more?

These types of questions and much more will be answered in my new book:

Baby Steps: The Path from Motherhood to Career, Reentering the workforce after having children.

This book is a reference guide and journal with tips, guidance and questions for reflection. There is an appendix at the back of the book which provides employment ideas and opportunities for mothers who want to reenter the workplace. For more information, visit Bent Tree Press at:
