    In many cases, Mothers have to handle the family budget along with so many other responsibilities.

    Perhaps some day they'll consider parenting skills and classes worthy of

    a degree.

    Maybe then it will be considered great job experience.

    Perhaps references could stand for a whole lot in the hiring of Mothers just like in other jobs. Teachers, doctors, friends...strong recommendations are worth a lot in every facet of life.

    I have a hard time with being told it is "too cutesy" to list Motherhood on a resume. I agree with you that it's work that we choose how we want to handle, however, being out of the work force outside of the home makes it a lot trickier to get back.

    For dashingscorpio: Men are now involved moreso in child rearing in America than ever. To me, that's a huge change in how Motherhood may be respected. Men have led in the working world for generations and generations. Times have changed.

    Some women opt not to accept the responsibility of being a mother. Are they still viewed as skilled in mothering when they put the title of "Mother" on their resume? The skills of mothering, in my opinion, go beyond the act of having a baby.
