Hello Everyone,

As non-traditional students, especially as parents (mother or father), our 
careers tend to be fluctuating.  Men, and single women without children have 
a positively sloped career, but women (and sometimes men) with children have 
careers that fluctuate.  At least this is what we learned in labor 

The career will reach a graphical peak, and then slope downward as the 
parent makes a willing decision to stay at home, and then slopes upward 
again as the next peak begins.

Parents who make the decision to stay at home with their children should be 
given a medal I think, especially single parents who are poor as church mice 
and make sacrifices (like me) but do it just so they can spend more time 
with their children!

Here is some interesting statistical information on women in the workforce 
that I thought the group would enjoy reading, since we are non-traditional
