Episode 018: Family Values and Career Choices

Sheila and Maria discuss the decisions all families are faced with when it is time to decide who will work, how they will work, and who will care for the children.  

"As a mother, you can have it all, you just may not be able to have it all at once."  - Elaine Anderson

In this episode, Sheila and Maria examine both society's viewpoints and the aspects of self-worth regarding the task and value of raising children vs. participating in the workforce.

With the costs of living and childcare skyrocketing, many families struggle to make ends meet when maternity and paternity leave come to a close. Society expects parents to jump right back into the workforce and their pre-baby routines, but that is not always the best option for families.
