      It is very nervous time, when you are starting a new job. But, how about going back into the market after years of being a home maker. It seems that even if you have had a great college education and did much multi-tasking as a mother, homemaker and housewife,etc.....rearing a bundle of healthy wellnurtured do not feel cut out for the so called 'real world'. Sure, one has kept a foot in the door...with part-time work here and there, but not the full-time office working positions. Then, what happens when a husband unexpectedly passes away and you are a couple years or so too young for any help with the Social Secuity benefits... it all is complicated ...and it can make a person very nervous to realize that the 'real world' does not recognize the mother and homemake as a working individual. We get no soc. sec. credits for that. It is a shame. Joan htt://
