Once upon a time, women got married, had children and then gave up their jobs to stay at home and look after their families. This is no longer the case. It’s certainly an option, and many women choose to stay at home while their children are young. But, it’s not the only option available. Men stay at home, women return to their previous positions, they look for new jobs with greater flexibility or start up on their own, and they even return to school.
Going back to school is a fantastic option for many moms and it’s easy to see why further education appeals to so many. It gives them a chance to start a new career or to refresh their knowledge after a break. Some go back to school with no career-related benefits in mind. They do it to learn and to take some time out to do something for themselves.
