Believe it or not, the most important people in your life are the people who take care of your children in your absence. As parents, being away from our children can be hard enough, so who we entrust the care of our children to is one of the most important decisions we can make.
On this page, you will find articles to keep you informed on current childcare trends, as well as resources to help you find the high-quality childcare that will put you at ease while you work – or (gasp!) perhaps go out for a movie with some friends!
How Can a Single Parent Be a Stay-At-Home Parent?
Many single parents would love to stay at home with their children instead of going off to work outside of the home, leaving their children in a day care facility or with babysitters. One way you can achieve this goal, provided that you have the space and the interest, is to create a family day care in your own home. Providing quality child care for 3 or 4 other children can allow you to earn an income while staying at home with your own children, as well as giving your children the opportunity to socialize with different children of all ages.
