Wendy Bradford

Many of us do not have choices; our circumstances dictate our decision to work or not. I applaud all the moms doing whatever they have to do for their families. Those of us that can decide to stay home or return to work have many factors to consider; the decision is difficult within ourselves and our families--we seek advice, insight, experience of friends and colleagues, other moms. But to need to debate the validity of other moms' decisions to stay home or go back to work is a fruitless effort often hyped up by the media. If it is driven by anything, I would guess jealousy of what other moms' lives appear to be, and fear that we are not doing things right in our own lives. Sadly, women do spend energy and time judging the decisions of other moms; we truly have the power and tools to change the world if we focus our attention on the needs of mothers and children around the globe and within our communities.
