Working for a boss who doesn't have kids when you're a parent.
I'm worried this will sound bad, but -- I'm interviewing for a job and it came up during the conversation with my would-be manager that she doesn't have kids (I mentioned the fact I have two under 5). It made me nervous. At my previous company, I worked for someone (also in their 40s, a man) who didn't have kids and he was NEVER understanding of when I had to call out of work last minute because my child got sick, my needing to leave early to pick up my son from preschool, etc. So, my question is: Do you think that childless bosses are truly able to understand // sympathize with what it means to be a working parent?
