Having a kids and having a career


Two articles caught my eye this week:

In Career Minded Women lose big, the author points to the difficulties women on a career track having once they have children. She urges women to stay in the career market and to rise as fast and high as they can before leaving to have children and suggests ways to 'stay in the game' after having kids.

While in this thoughtful piece in the Guardian, Madeline Bunting looks at the issue again and points to why women might choose not to follow the same ambitous career path but design a life which work, life and child-care all have a place.

It's a difficult choice - and it's no surprise that for women who feel ambivalent or unsure of having kids and who have a career they enjoy it makes the decision even harder.
