Times, they are a changing, always. However, changing times seem to happen in the blink of an eye. I do believe we women leaders need to stop and take a deep look at what we are doing and the profound consequences of our actions.
In days of yore, we were to be kept “barefoot and pregnant” and now we have “freedom of choice”.
The big question is, what are we choosing and why?
The following post is one that should make all of us stop and think. What does it mean to have a child and why do we decide to do what we do? We really need more training in how systems thinking works rather than just the individual concept of “what we want”.
I’d love to hear from women who are looking at the issues of bearing and raising a child and what really matters, what we want and desire, and the best interests of the child. I don’t want to be shouting out like a moralist. I do know from my background as a family therapist and executive coach that there is more to being a mother than procreating.
Let me hear your thoughts.
