Rethinking Parenting

What do the numbers not tell us, about happiness, fulfillment, and the choices we want to make about parenting? Can we think differently about the relation between working and having kids? Can we find ways to compose our lives that are not defined by cultural images, our parents' decisions, the "ghosts in the nursery," recent studies at Yale, Penn and Bryn Mawr...? Join in a conversation about dispelling myths and defining ourselves, as we figure out how to balance work and family without the constraint of cultural stereotypes.
