    married (with or without kids).  Just because I'm not married and/or don't have kids doesn't mean I don't have family obligations and/or personal needs that need to be met.

    •  Same goes for empty nesters vs. young mothers (0+ / 0-)

      We have a lot of young teachers at my school who have given birth within the last few years.  There is some tension between them and those of us who have been there, done that.  There shouldn't be and I don't know where it comes from.  Us empty nesters are very supportive of the young moms as we've all been there and we know how difficult it can be.  They don't seem to understand that we have similar challenges--particularly those of us who are now dealing with aging parents.
