I've always been under the impression that you should avoid talking about your personal life in interviews.

This must vary a lot by industry.

Me too, unless something they say indicates doing so is a good thing.

I have interviewed hundreds of people in the past few years and I would never ask such a broad question.

"one childless respondent e-mailed in response to my post on our Today at the Forum blog. "It's just tough sometimes to get up on a snowy day and trudge into work only to find out that half of the office is out because their children have a snow day.""

In each of the jobs I had, parents didn't get more days off than non-parents.
