Parents - how did you explain the gap in your resume if you stayed home to take care of them?


If any of you stayed home for a few years after having children, how did you explain the gap after going back on interviews? I'm afraid that if I confess at the interview that I have young children and that I stayed at home with for a few years, the hiring manager will think that I won't be in a position to work as hard as the others and that I would need more time off to take care of sick children and I would need to leave earlier than the others to pick up the kids from daycare, etc. and I won't even be considered for the job.
