Useful for those considering the dual roles

Lots of very good and practical advice. Enjoyed narration. Recommend this book if you are also considering a return to work after becoming a mother.

A Must Read for Guilty Feeling Moms!!

If you're a working mom, battling with guilt, this book is exactly what you need! I'm a working father that tries to find every way possible to help my wife overcome her guilty feeling about putting our 2 and 4 year olds in daycare/school. It doesn't help that all her best girlfriends are all 'stay-at-home' moms, making my wife feel even worst. My wife really enjoys working, and honestly feels like she's a better mom by getting the time away... but there is still that deep down guilt that she has when one of the kids really don't want to go to daycare that day.

I purchased this book for her, she listened to it, and it has radically changed her perspective! It brought her peace, JUST to know that she is not the only woman out there that battles with this feeling of guilt! Not only that, but this book gave her incredible tips as to how overcome some of the situations she encounters. And also helped her see things from the 'stay-at-home' perspective. It can be easy to assume that you're doing something wrong because you're working, and never consider the thought that the stay-at-home mom sometimes wonders if SHE is doing something wrong, because she is choosing to keep their child home.

Anyways, I could go on and on about this book, but I'll stop here. It's totally worth every penny, especially if you battle with guilt. We live in a different world than the generations before us, and if we refuse to accept that things change, we can beat ourselves up in ways that are unfair to ourselves.

God Bless.
