The PRIMARY DILEMMA recognizes that working mothers are not all the same.
It offers tools to help clarify the work-family choices that we each face.
What’s your method? How contented are you?
How can you increase your job satisfaction?
I faced my dilemma, head on, when I returned to work after the birth of my first child. I went back to a demanding, full-time job with an hour commute. My husband also had a demanding full-time job with a longer commute, frequent travel and higher earning power. I was about to identify as the primary physical parent. But I did not know it. And I did not consider the implications of this role on my plan for working motherhood.

Lynn is a proud mom of 4 amazing kids and has spent 18 years in corporate America as a marketing executive.
Her inspiration for the PRIMARY DILEMMA came after the birth of her fourth child as she considered, with frustration, that ONE SIZE does not fit all working mothers.
She interviewed working mothers to understand the choices that they make and why they make them. She realized that there were common strategies used by the most contented working moms. And that most had a working-mother method that did not try to “have it all”. Instead, the method reconciles the choices to “have it best”.
