Support for Work-Life Balance like Jobshares/Flex-time/Real part time job opportunities

As a sole parent I had a choice: continue my life-consuming career and miss out on my child's entire childhood -or- be a real care-giver Mom and stay home with her. There didn't seem to be any real options in-between! So kids either grow up somewhat neglected or cared for by others -or- families suffer economically.

Changing the paradigm so that there are real family-friendly options for careers with job-share opportunities for real career positions; viable part-time career positions with benefits; Flex-time or work-from-home options; etc.

I am sure you clever politicians can come up with some ideas and break this rat-race paradigm wide open! Our future well-being as a nation truly depends on it!
