Stay at Home or Go Back to Work after Having Children?
New Book Addresses Key Question for Every Mother with Sensitivity, Practical Knowledge and a Dose of Good Sense
Research indicates that whether or not to reenter the workforce after children is one of the biggest stress factors affecting women. According to the Pew Research Center, 60% of working moms now say part-time work is the ideal situation, compared with 48% in 1997. Among stay-at-home moms, less than half say staying at home is ideal. So how do women sort through all the information and get it right for themselves and their family?
Baby Steps: The Path from Motherhood to Career, Reentering the workforce after staying home with children is a new book that takes mothers through this emotional decision-making process by taking a pragmatic approach to both the figurative and literal steps women take before returning to the workforce.
"Rather than saying one way is right, another is wrong or, even worse, pitting working moms against stay-at-home-moms, Baby Steps helps women sort through the thinking process and second-guessing that going back to work inevitably brings", said Baby Steps author Diane Lang. "The book walks them through the stages of updating skills, dressing for success, interview preparation, and creating winning resumes and cover letters."
In addition to author, Lang’s titles also include professor, life coach, therapist, speaker and, most importantly, mother. Her myriad experiences on Motherhood to Career include seminars for moms re-entering the workforce; co-hosting a radio show on the art of balancing motherhood and career; and contributing to several working mom Blogs.
"In a simple, to-the-point manner, Baby Steps stresses striving for balance, while keeping happiness, personal values and health at the forefront", said Lang, who herself returned to work part-time shortly after the birth of her daughter. It was this experience that taught her how the transition road is filled with trials, anxiety and excitement. It also helped Lang realize how much smoother the transition could have been with advice and coaching from someone who had been through the steps from career, to motherhood, and back to career.
Lang holds an M.A. in Counseling and a B.A. in Liberal Arts from the New York Institute of Technology. In addition, to being employed at various universities as a Professor and Chairperson, she currently works as a therapist at Universal Institute in Livingston, NJ, and a life coach in the New York/New Jersey areas.
