    If having children doesn't limit your work (whether you are a father or a mother), I feel sorry for your children.

    [Being a mother can be valuable experience for being a manager in the workplace. Teenagers who talk back and never do their chores can help parents develop skills in interpersonal communication, for instance.]

    Not really, but keep pretending like homemaking has some valid skills outside of the home. Working with adult employees with whom you have no relation has little in common with dealing with your obstinate teenager.

    Treat you employees like your treat your teenager and you won't get very far. Besides, if you don't have "interpersonal communication" skills in the first place, you probably shouldn't have children.

    That's like saying owning slaves prepares you for other leadership roles...
