***Actually I didn't finish my sentence, just say, "even though you are thankful for having them give you the opportunity to work there, you just feel that you really need to move on to another position that is more accomodating to your needs, in particular one that is more family-oriented in regards to a being open to arranging a more flexible work schedule."
Then when they have you write out a reason for termination on paper, put down "need more flexible work schedule".

> The key is for you to go to them (before they go to you) about your need to 'move on' to another job, one that is more family-oriented, and ask them for a recommendation as well as a decent severance package, if possible, to help make this an easier transition. Tell them you don't want to burn any bridges, but the reality is, that you just think that the 'fit' doesn't quite work, because your concerns and needs to be with your family. And although you've appreciated and and thankful for them giving you the opportunity to work there (I know it sounds really brown-nosing, but better to get it over with, fact is, you really are very dependant on them giving you a good reference, which is THE key to getting a new job, and you will be grateful for it when it's over, the moment when your new prospective employer calls your old boss to see how you were on your last job, and if they should hire you, you want them to say *yes* they would hire you again therefore they should too. You *don't* want them to say no.) And don't hope they don't make that phone call, because they do, they *all* do!
