A few anecdotes:
- The mom blogger who earns six-figures each year calls herself a
"stay-at-home-mom." (Not surprising: Pew found 40 percent of
Americans believe (brace yourself for the horror) it HARMS children
when their mothers work outside the home.
- The Columbia educated mom who left her banking position owning
to burnout and yearning to spend more time with her kids
defensively tells all new acquaintances: "I'm NOT staying
home. I'm consultingworkingparttimevolunteering!"
How do you define yourself as a mom? Is it by what you value
(professional mom vs SAHM)? Or what you're actually doing at that
Does it matter?
In this episode I share my thoughts on this: Yes it
does matter. Because by lying about not earning and working when
you do, you perpetuate sexist stereotypes and parenting myths that
hold women back.
