As mothers, we decide to work full-time, part-time or stay-at-home with our child/children. No matter our decision, we face a broad spectrum of issues and challenges including work-family balance, “mommy path” career delays or stalls, “mommy wars,” and “mothers’ guilt.”  The articles, reading and information in this category address these, providing perspective and research on how these issues and challenges effect us and our families.
