Regardless of the situation at hand, a stay at home job sure does help – no matter how you look at it. I recall a few years ago when my sister decided to leave her job and stay home to raise her children. Even though her husband had a secure job, it barely fulfilled all the needs of her young family. It didn’t take her long to realize that a little more income would be a nice benefit.
But with little kids under foot, how the heck can you get any work done ? Well, why not get them involved ? Now I’m not condoning child labor in any way shape or form, but kids really do want to help mom and dad. Not only will you get to spend the valuable time with your little ones, they will learn powerful lessons that they will carry throughout their lives.
