Not necessarily true, we had kids and the wife was able to move into a position they did not require much travel and if she did travel it was just for one day. She did quit for a while took off for 2 yrs as the kids started into school. They she landed a job which was part time and out of the home so she could still spend time with the kids, and the travel has picked up again but the kids are teenagers not so not a problem leaving them home.
It is all in what you make of it and focus on the priorities.
