You bring up a really important issue. The answer I have found is to
leave traditional research and piece together other accepable employment
to leave me time to spend with my kids. I quit soon after I received my
PhD because I was not willing to put in the 10+ hour days. I work 2 part
time jobs now - both related to my training - but neither in research.
It's the trade off you get by having kids - and I wouldn't have it any
other way! I wouldn't miss the flexibility or time my piece work career
gives me to spend with my kids. Do I miss the challenge of the lab?
Absolutely. Did I have a choice? Absolutely not!
