I have been a stay at home Mom for the past six years. Now that my daughter is in school, I have the opportunity to return to work at the same position I had before she was born. The pay is great and I was able to get my employer to agree to no break in service. The issue is my daughter who is emotionally coming undone about me not being home and her usual schedule being changed. I am torn. How do I still "be there" for my daughter, and get back to work (which I really need to do)?

I need to find day care for my two kids. There is a Center in town that a lot of people at work use, but there is also a woman who runs a small group out of her house, kind of informally. What is the right way to decide which one offers the better experience for me and my kids?

I always hear from women's business groups how women are supposed to stick together and support and encourage each other. That's not the case at my job. It is just the opposite. The women are the worst at gossiping about other women, go to a manager if a woman co-worker makes an error, and also take credit for the work of other women so that they can't get ahead. If I try to change what is happening, it makes it worse for me. I need some advice on what to do about really bad women at work.

I really need to gain flexibility in my work hours as I have small children at home who are growing and requiring more of my time at their school or other activities. I've worked worked in big corporate jobs for more than a decade, my entire career. I'm now considering a transition to a consulting job where I would establish my own company and work as a contractor to gain flexibility. What pitfalls should I be aware of? How do I reconcile the potential instability in my income?

I work for a respected consultant. He is developing a web site based on his business. I am coordinating the project. Today, without any explanation from him, I started to get e-mails from various members of his family, giving me instructions on how to do some of the work. I am very uncomfortable with this, but don't want to lose the opportunity to work on this project. How should I approach it? What should I do if he pushes back?

A male coworker recently over stepped his directive by contacting one of my clients directly and not notifying me until after the fact. When I confronted him, he became anxious that I was actually angry with him when all I wanted to do was talk about how to handle the situation in the future. He went so far as to comment, "It's ok if you're mad. I like it when your'e angry - it's very sexy". My work environment is male dominated so I'm uncomfortable to speak up and do not want to involve HR.

I am getting harassed by my boss. He is making very clear remarks to me about wanting to go out, and what he can do for my career if I were to go out with him for dinner. I can only imagine what he would try if I was to go out. I am his Executive Assistant and I need a job to cover bills. I am so stressed out that I have trouble sleeping, and I hate to go to work. I know he will fire me if I don't give in. What can I do?

I've recently returned to work after taking 5 years off to raise my son. The women in my department have been distant, and do not include me in the regular beat of what's going on. I've overheard a conversation about me - that I was a stay at home Mom, and they've been working for years to advance, and now I come in and think I can get a job that was supposed to go to one of the women in the group. I am at a loss - do I address the issue, or just try to be social and defrost the situation?

My husband has been offered a transfer to another city, over 1800 miles away. I've just re-established myself in the workforce, and have a good job. I will be earning half the income we bring in. Tonight we had a huge fight and he told me that if I can't see how the move will help his career, he will relocate without me. The conversation was angry and is not over. I know it signals the end of our marriage. I feel like there has to be some kind of compromise, but I am talking to a stone.
