Career or motherhood? Do you have to sacrifice one to be truly successful in the other? And if you're trying to do both, will you have to compromise your career path or your child's needs? Is "having it all" even realistic, or just plain fantasy? Leading Stanford University psychologist Dr. Laraine Zappert draws upon her twenty years of clinical and research experience to answer these questions and create a road map of innovative solutions. Through her findings from a landmark study of more than three hundred female graduates of Stanford's Graduate School of Business, Dr. Zappert addresses such critical concerns as:
choosing between career and family
handling the job stress and the demands of parenting
the best time to have children -- and what effect they'll have on a career
keeping relationships healthy
feeling confident about the decision to tackle the challenges of home and work.
