This is a book for working mothers. Many working mothers today face great tension between their families and careers. They are more likely than men to feel pressed for time and conflicted about being away from young children while working. They are also more likely to seek out help or guidance.
Mastering the Mommy Track tells the stories of everyday working mothers, the challenges they have faced, and lessons learned. It also offers solutions from experts on how mothers can overcome current issues in order to lead happy, healthy lives at home and work.
A 2010 Pew Research survey found that 30 months after it began, the Great Recession has led to a downsizing of Americans' expectations about their retirements and their children's future; a new frugality in their spending and borrowing habits; and a concern that it could take several years, at a minimum, for their house values and family finances to recover. While not grim, this book takes a serious approach, telling the tales of women who have struggled through the economic downturn to achieve a new working attitude.
