Mothers returning to the workforce
When I quit college after my bachelor’s degree because we were starting our family, I always had a strong sense that I would return for graduate studies because I’d seen this pattern modeled in many LDS homes. Such women who’d elected to stay home during their child-rearing years then returned to their studies or back to the workforce when their kids were older, typically when they started school. So I found it fascinating to know that this isn’t a pattern that’s solely confined to the LDS experience.
I’m curious how many of you plan to return to work after a stint as a full-time Mom, or how many of you have already followed this path. For those of you who’ve done this, what advice can you offer to those women who want to follow in your footsteps?
