I'll bet this author a paycheck she cannot show a 1 to 1 in these stands! Truth is most women who leave the work place would not go back to save their lives after they get past the initial phase..... Sure some miss work, however if you think because you don't have a job you can't be fullfilled you are nuts. There are so many things out there, organizations, community groups etc... that a stay at home mom can find pleanty of "satisfaction" without dealing with a BOSS.
The idea that as many stay at home moms regret or feel unfullfilled by not working, as there are women who have come to realize that they are cheating their children and feel guilty about it because they work.. is feminist drivel.
I worked for 15 years and have not worked for the past 10 years. I can tell you there is no comparison. I loved being able to take my children to and from school, help in their classrooms, make sack lunches and cook dinner. I have great kids and a wonderful husband.
I had an awesome career and a job most would envy but it all pales in comparison to my my years as a stay at home mom and housewife. My youngest is now a senior in high school but I will not ever go back to work. I would rather be poor.
