I am an IT professional with 12+ years in the field. I feel it is high time that I change my career, as I have 2 kids to take care of. Can anyone throw some light on this topic. Here are some points that I could think of.
  • A teacher
  • career with a small computer s/w training institute
  • stitching
  • Becoming a home maker

Here are my replies :

Firstly, you need to evaluate why are you quitting? Is it because you want to spend time with your children or Is it because you had enough of corporate work experience? Is it because the office dynamics are changing too quickly that you are finding it difficult to handle at this moment(2-3 years). If so, you can think of a break and persue you line of interest and do a course in the same and empower yourself to start something in a year or 2.

A teacher 
    This is a very good option if you get a job in good school. If the school is really good, you can think of moving your children also to the same school and all 3 of you can go and come together and you will have holidays alng with your childre, You might in intervals have hiccups of leaves due to emergency for children. However, if you can manage this and complete the required certifications, you can reach the top in thsi area also

     This will be no less than your current job as they work with minimal staff and expect you to deliver and individual dependency is high. If you are planning to start one then it is needless to say that it will take your time for initial days but once it gets going you can relax and go at your time. You need to check if you are okay to take that risk and challenge

stitching 
   Very nice! My line of interest too. You can have 1 or 2 or may be 3 nice tailors and start a very good boutique. If you are creative, you can go get the materials and make outfits to order. Designing.

Becoming a home maker  

  You are anyways and always a Home Maker whether you are working or not. But, if you feel like taking a short break, you can have it. However, I would strongly suggest not to limit yourself. The reason being, you have sepnt 12 years in IT. This shows very clearly that you the ability to take the pressure of home and work. You didn't take a break just after you had your children. That made me make that assumption. The need and want to have a break is very genuine and natural. Do not forget that this need will soon evaporate and

you start regretting your decision. That is what will kill you internally and spoil all your relations. My suggestion is engage yourself positively. You can enroll for NGO activites as well or take tuitions for limited children.These are my thoughts. Little too lengthy.
Others in the group, please do not get me wrong if I have mentioned anything that is not palatable to you.

A teacher : This is a very good option if you get a job in good school. If the school is really good, you can think of moving your children also to the same school and all 3 of you can go and come together and you will have holidays along with your children. You might in intervals have hiccups of leaves due to emergency for children. However, if you can manage this and complete the required certifications, you can reach the top in this area also.

Career with a small computer s/w training institute : This will be no less than your current job as they work with minimal staff and expect you to deliver and individual dependency is high.

Stitching : Very nice! My line of interest too. You can have 1 or 2 or may be 3 nice tailors and start a very good boutique. If you are creative, you can go get the materials and make outfits to order. Designing. !!!
