    hi all,
    good day. i'm a happy stay at home mom for a toddler boy of 2years old. i'm at home for 4 years , i did my proj at a mnc for my eng degree, by the way i continued my proj work for a year .thats my experience.
    i did my Mba IN THESE 4 YEARS(that too i completed it last year only).

    sometimes i feel very bored at home although i love working (i 'm happy at home doing all house hold chores happily too.)
    i want to have recognisation of my self. sometimes my moral boost goes low as if i've wasted a seat at the eng college a nd money.
    will i get a good job after this break ?
    please boost my moral spirits to face the facts.

    thanks,
    harini:confused2:

    Harini Dear,
    been in your shoes myself. So I can confidently say this is just a phase..... every human being at times have doubts about their capabilities. You have the required higher education for any type of job....be it in academics, industry or for starting a business. Enjoy the time that your are spending with your toddler and when you are ready for a job then at that time brush up your skills and jump into the job market. With a booming economy I am pretty sure there is a perfect job waiting for you.
    Please remember that education is not a waste of money

    my stats are
    1. worked as lecturer in junior college before marraige
    2. stayed at home for 3 yrs after marraige in that time moved to US and had a child
    3. went back to school in US for 2 years
    4. had my second child and stayed home for 2 yrs
    5. Worked in biotech for 4 years
    6. stayed at home for three years and opened a business
    7. worked in IT for 4 years
    9. took a break for 1 year
    10 my last avatar (hopefully) as a QA professional

    Always always remember that life is not a straight journey there are ups and downs.

    Good luck and wish you all the happiness

    hi harini
    children need their mother now. when ur son will be older un can work outside.
    or u can work at home. i used to work in hospital when my children were toddler.it was awful. living them in a nursery, going to work, pick up my children, cooking, at the end it wasnt worth it. why dont u enrol ur child in a playgroup. u can meet other mum.
    hope i helped a little
    bye

    Hi Harini,
    I am also in the same boat worked for 5 yrs in the IT fld in US in well reputed company and took a break after my second kid was born.. he is almost will 3 in couple months. even many times i felt just like you many times thiniking iam wasting my time and education.. but my husband always tells me iam doing the greatest job in the world taking care of kids and don't look at the short term ... there is a whole life ahead to work next thity fourty years but kids never be this young... so just enjoy the time with kids... this time will never come back...but you can always get a job( finaly sinked into my mind
    but first two after quiting the job was terrible)
