I've been trying to get a job, but a number of prospective employers have told me that I'm not employable due to to the fact that when my children were small I stayed at home and took care of them... my youngest child is 14 years old, and I did go back to work quite a few years ago, but that was when I was living in a different area, and now that I'm in this one particular location where 'the rule of the day' is daycare for all, I'm told that my long-ago history of taking care of my own kids has left me as a very poor employment risk...
anyone have some input or advice on this?
p.s. my screen name is Heart_of_fire, not heart of fir!!!! :)
