Full Time Vs. Part Time Job(Repost From Parenting)

These past few weeks I have been contemplating working part time vs. my full time schedule. My aunt picks up Marissa from school but won't be able to do it much longer. Marissa is 6 and I feel the need to be there with her when she gets home from school. I know the $$ coming in will be less, but some things are priceless. How did you decide on what was best??? I need advice. TIA

I know that in this day in age it is hard for moms to stay home with their kids. Most couples just can't live on LI and support a family on one income. I know for me it will be difficult. HOWEVER, my mother was a stay at home mom and I think I was very lucky for that. We always had a tight relationship because of that. I know that day care is good for little children to learn how to socialize but nothing is more precious than the bond between a child and their mother. If you can afford to be at home, I think you should seize that opportunity. You only have one chance to spend that quality time with your child while they are young enough to still want and need you around. Chat Icon

I have a 2yo son with my ex-husband and unfortunately, being a single mom now...I HAVE to work...On the other hand I am in another relationship with my (soon to be fiance) and we are looking to buy a house soon. Once we do and are married we are thinking of possibly having a baby of our own. IF and WHEN that happens I will stay at home once the new baby has arrived, at that point my son should just about be the age for kindergarten. I will probably only stay home for about 6 mos and then go back part time for a few years before going back full time.

I was a stay-at-home mom and loved every minute of it. My husband worked extra jobs in order for this to work. From the time my children went to school, I was there whenever they got off the bus. We hated the idea of them coming home to an empty house. We did without, but, felt it was worth it. Both my daughters said they were always glad to have someone there when they came home from school, even in high school.

I am considering the same thing as you. I absolutely love my job but FT day care is 1200 which is ridiculous. I am thinking that if I changed to pt nites then my mom could watch the baby from like 3-9 or something to that effect. DH is looking into switching his hrs as well.

I would switch to part time if I had the option.
