It can be a tough decision when you are considering the options of going back to work or continuing to stay home. For some moms, it can be especially challenging if you have not had an established career before the kids came. Here’s an email from a local mom looking to go back to work soon:
I am currently a SAHM and am thinking that it’s time I go get a job, but I don’t know where to start. I started having kids when I was 21 and I don’t have much work experience. I’ve been out of a job for close to ten years now and am afraid to enter back into something that I was never really a part of. Now that I have kids and they are all in school I feel like I want to create a life for myself but still have some flexibility to be there when they need me. This is where I am struggling the most. I don’t want to not be there for my kids and am wondering if there are any family friendly companies in the Austin area that I can try to get a job at? I live north and don’t mind driving as far as downtown or even out to Round Rock/ Georgetown.
