I have 6 children the youngest 3 turnign 4 at the end of the year. I am currently at home with her but always think about going back to work pref school hours, it also would make me feel like i am contributing in life.

the thought of leaving her at daycare brings back memories where she was in agongy pain at being left at such a wonderful daycare, i ask her if she would like to go back, some days it is a yes others no mum no kindy.

are there any other mums out there that have had this situation please.

I also think about starting something up from home so i am always there to her and also my othere children.

any advice would be so great

thank you

  • Is it possible to get employment that you can work from home most of the time rather than starting a business unless you have sufficient experience to be sure it would definitely make a profit. Some State Govts. have a set-up where you can get advise about starting a small business, what there is a demand for etc.


  • just wondering what you decided – did you do day care or set up something at home?


  • You need to decide what you think is best you can always reevaluate and change things if you need to


  • This is a common question on this site. Go with your heart, what does it say? Do you need the money? You could start with just a couple of days working a week. Kids are always off and on with what they want :/ Woeking from hone would be an awesome choice, the best of both worlds as far as a mum is concerned


  • So hard, I think just try what your gut says and if it doesn’t work, keep going until it does:)


  • hope you are in better situation now
    wish you all the best


  • it s a great top story


  • It’s a lot of work staying home and looking after the family.


  • It;s a tough time for all involved.


  • it is totally up to you but please don’t think that you are not contributing ot life by staying home with your kids. You are a great parent
