The Work At Home Parents Network is here to help you find legit work at home ideas and teach parents how to manage an at home business and still have time for the family! For many parents who stay home with their children, the decision isn't an easy one. We weigh the money and the satisfaction we get from our jobs and figure out whether it's worth the necessary sacrifices - and there are many - to stay home and care for our child ourselves.
According to the 2000 census report, 48 percent of kids younger than 2 - and 25 percent of those between the ages of 3 and 6 - are cared for solely by a parent. And in families in which the mothers work, 14 percent of children are cared for by their father.
If you ask any stay-at-home parent why he or she does it, moms and dads alike say they value the chance to share their child's developmental accomplishments, along with the security of knowing they're in charge of their child's care. And if you ask them whether it's easy, you're likely to get a response straight out of a military recruitment ad: "It's the toughest job you'll ever love."
As a stay-at-home parent you'll know that your child is being cared for by someone who's going to be around for a long time - not a caregiver who might take another job next month. And you'll be directly supervising your child's care, making sure it's in a relaxed, nurturing environment. For some families, it's actually less expensive for one parent to stay home than it would be to pay for childcare.
And if you can afford it, you may find that staying home reduces your stress level. Many parents decide to stay home after trying unsatisfactorily to balance work and family. The long hours and the feeling of cutting too many corners leave them feeling burned out. Staying home will give you more time to spend with your children, maintain your home, and help keep your family life running smoothly.
