find out things they already know? Whv
do you need a quiz to knolV if you put
family before career? Look at yourse\f­
are you "middle-aged" with more tyres
round the midclle than zeroes in your hank
balance? Yes, you definitely put family
before career. Why do you need a quiz to
tell you whether you would make a good
mother? Talk to your mother, if you find
that you agree with her far more than you
did when you were 16 years oleL the
answer is simple: Forget good mother or
bael you would be your mother.
