College grads living in metropolitan areas who decide to have children before the age of 30 are bucking the demographic trend. That leaves the women who decide to have babies feeling alone and out of the mainstream, the Washington Post reports. In metro areas, the percentage of college graduates between the ages of 25 and 29 who have children is 13 percent for men and 31 percent for women, according to the University of Chicago’s National Opinion Research Center. Women who are college grads usually have their first child at about the age of 30, reports the National Center for Health Statistics.

Among those who decided not to put off children is 28-year-old associate Erin Foley Lewis of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, who has twins.

“By the time I’m at a point in my career where I am going to be making partner, my kids are going to be old enough to be playing on their own and sleeping on their own,” Lewis told the newspaper. “If I had waited until 33 to have children, I’d have newborns at the time I would be up for partner.”

Another young mother is 28-year-old law student Amy Elliott, who attends George Washington University. “When I walk up to the day care with Emmett, I always feel like they are looking at me and thinking, ‘Oh, she’s the babysitter dropping off the kid, or whatever,’ ” she said.

I can leave a meaningful awesome comment and add content and substance to one of your posts and you will give me a link in exchange. There are too many takers out there and they aren’t willing to help people out. Take take take! .

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
