Young women have a clear discomfort mimicking their workaholic boomer moms, but those that had stay-at-home mothers don’t necessarily want that path either. Hewlett found that boomers’ black-or-white vision of work—opt in and go full throttle or opt out and never have a career—is too constricting a philosophy for Gen Y women. Instead, the youngest female workers tend to give equal emphasis to family and career.

I am complete opposite of my mother and every bit like my father. My mother never worked a day in her life. My father a workaholic, loved his career with a passion but at the same time wanted to make certain my mother did not have to work. She was always home for us, we could count on that. Dinner was every night at 6:00 p.m. no matter what. Me on the other hand.....workaholic with 3 kids and a great husband.
