Lisa Belkin posts a letter from a woman who is planning on either working part-time or quitting all together now that she has a newborn. The woman is surprised at herself for making this decision. Until now, she had been devoted to her work and been even contemptuous of SAHMs. Belkin asks the readers for advice for this woman.
I'm curious what comments she'll receive. My prediction is that nearly all of the commenters will tell the women to do whatever they did. The parents that stayed at home will say it is the best, while the pay-check parents will tell her that paid employment is the best. And all the childless people will be completely clueless.
