Working Mother Message Board?

Is there another message board that focuses on the issues today's working mothers have? I couldn't find any so I ended up here, but I really don't want to debate the SAHM/WOHM issue--in the course of childrearing, I will have done both--SAHM when they were young and WOHM when they are older. I am past the stage of deciding to work or not---I am definitely ready to do so. I am looking for a place to discuss issues that I am sure to encounter as I complete the task of raising my teenagers while working full-time. Any working mothers out there who can steer me in the right direction?

I think the closest thing IVILLAGE has to that is a board called "The Balancing Act".


I could be wrong, though.

There probably are some, but I find support boards boring. I kind of like the push/pull of a debate forum much better. I've learned way more by disagreeing with people than I ever have on the "Ditto! ITA! LMAO!" Boards.

I have to admit, this board scares me sometimes. I am so not a confrontational person IRL, but I force myself to post here even if it means getting into the thick of a debate. It really is helping me to grow a thicker skin and look at things from different angles.


The down side is that I find myself slightly less diplomatic on the Support Board I am on because I forget where I am posting.
