TO THE EDITOR:
“Children's lives do not wait.” This is the theme in Dr. McMurray's essay (1) about her mother's decision to leave medicine in the late 1940s and her father's regrets about not having “picked more daisies” during his 40 years of medical practice. In her response to this poignant essay, Dr. Nagy-Agren gives us a look into our progress in the area of work–family balance over the past 50 years (2). Both Dr. McMurray's mother and Dr. Nagy-Agren were left feeling “scared, unsupported, [and] possibly unwanted” as they tried to adjust their practices of medicine to accommodate the needs of their children.
