On A Father-Daughter Duo Answers Your Questions: Is This the Right Time to Leave My Job?

As a new mom I worked in a fulfilling job that, due to a management change, became torture. Being in a crap job made me a worse parent. Now I am working at a job where I am not miserable every day and I have the emotional energy to be the parent I want to be. This begets a virtuous cycle: I feel less guilt about being a mom who works outside the home because I am fully engaged with my child when I get home instead of having to work through the day's trauma, this enables me to be more effective and engaged with my work.
