I was supposed to post this yesterday but anyway…
My friends (mostly girls) and I were having a discussion on whether we should pursue a PhD/Career or be able to stay home to nurture the kids. The dilemma faced by one of my friends was that she wanted to be a relatively young mum (i.e. no more than 25 yrs). The problem is that she would also like to pursue a PhD which means she won’t finish until she’s around 26.
The problem is that if she does decide to pursue a PhD then she will have to hold off getting a kid until later (which she doesn’t want to do). However if she decides to have the kid then she won’t be able to pursue a PhD/Career, because she wants to be able to look after the kid herself until at least the kid has grown up.
What would you do?
