We are all giving opinions but I have worked with people without a high school diploma to someone with a PhD, with or without children, young and old and I have been on all sides and know that the best thing to do is to make sure that everything remain focused on what's important...are you qualified for the job.

Mine is more than an opinion. I interact with companies as I help people with their resumes. As I said to Scott in my rating, "Companies like to see something like that on the resume of a woman who has been a stay-at-home mom. It shows she used her talents no matter what the area and that she can think on her feet to list it on a resume."
The best thing to do is to show that you are qualified for the job because you are always aware of costs and savings and management, even as it applies to your own family.
