Most work-at-home parents who employ part-time or no childcare will work while simultaneously caring for a child. This works best the older a child is. With an infant or a toddler, parents can only work in short stretches or while the child naps.

School-age children should be able to play independently. According to americanprogress.org, child care services enable parents to get the education or training they need to access good jobs. In addition to the positive long-term impacts that high-quality preschool and child care have on children and the economy, these programs provide important benefits to working parents, especially working mothers. Reopening them would provide much needed child care for parents and other caregivers who need to work, help feed the 30 million U.S. children who rely on low-cost or free school meals, and prevent. Child care is an important work support for parents.

However, the cost of market-rate center-based care can be a barrier for families. This brief focuses on parents who work full time and full year, a group that encompasses over 70% of all working parents. While these parents are highly attached to the labor force, 21% are low income. If you’re a work at home mom and have a flexible schedule, do you need childcare?

YES. Here are 4 childcare tips for working at home with kids. Your Child is Running a Fever If a child has a fever, that means no school or daycare and usually no work for mom or dad.

Since kids typically need to be fever-free for 24 hours before they can go back, having an in-home backup care option can save working parents a day out of the office. As parents look to scale back hours or work from home once in a while in an attempt to deal with child care or other family responsibilities, take advantage of the technology that enables them to stay connected and engaged. Providing flexibility over when and where employees work does not have to come at the expense of results. The best child care providers will ask you for feedback on whether they are meeting your and your child’s needs. Finding a provider who sees you as a partner is important because strong relationships between all the people important to children—parents, extended family members, family friends, and teachers—help children grow and learn.

Military Child Care Fee Assistance Programs especially if parents are working different hours such as second or third shift or have to be at work before other types of care settings open.

However, working at home doesn’t eliminate the need for childcare; you still need someone in the home to help while your partner gets work done, unless your partner is willing to work nights and weekends while you take over childcare duties.

  • Stay home if could live on that $70,000 without the husband having to work part-time at another job, use this time staying home to start a home base business that does not cost anything to start and build it up over the next few years. So when all of them are in school, the home base business will be making 30K and it is something that you can go and get kids from school or stay home when they are out of school. that happens all the time so it has to be something that is flexible

  • I work and still spend time with my baby and that’s because I work per diem jobs I make my own schedule and own hours which doesn’t interfere with the quality time with my baby. I also get help from Des for day care. But if you can be a stay at home mom great! But it’s not for everyone like myself ��

  • 70k and 4 kids isn’t easy, but it’s more than enough. You don’t need cable. You don’t need to eat out. You don’t need excess trips and vacations. Granted, I’m not a parent. But I was a kid in a 6 person household with a father working seasonally so we often made less. And I still went to a great private school. We were often in that weird spot of being poor and not qualifying for government assistance (and thank God for that since we’re not dependent). And today they don’t have debt (still making less) and are helping pay for university while totally renovating our home.
    All that to say that if you’re disciplined, you’ll be fine. Live simple and smart. You make more than the vast majority of people ever have in human history. Just pray that the twins are beautifully healthy kids, and I trust that you’ll make it work. It’s probably best if mom stays home for them. God bless.

  • It is so selfish for a married mom to work. Your husband and children deserve it. Why have kids if you are going to pay someone else (minimum wage!!!) To raise them?

  • If you put them in daycare you can both work and possibly work overtime depending on the job and where you live, but if you choose to stay home you can save on daycare costs, but you lose on a second income

  • Sounds like you’re not buying anything without a coupon and every meal is home cooked! Take care of your kids and your budget…and don’t plan on getting anything new for the next 5-10 years. It’s doable.

  • I dont think anyone should stay home because you never know what could happen and employers really dont like gaps in your work history for any reason.ive been through divorce so I know how this can go.

  • Are either set of grandparents retired? They can look after the kids. Not only does it save money but it makes the family closer. Rather than dumping your pride and joy at some indoctrination center

  • Yeah Dave, if your selfish and greedy, send your wife out to work which is contrary to God’s word.
    Let someone else raise your kids and make money the priority instead of adhearing to God’s perfect word.
    Another Parenting fail Dave!

  • I don’t understand all these comments about how crazy they are to have 4 kids on that income. Unless you live in an area with a high living cost, $70,000 for a family of 6 is totally doable. In fact, I’d say you could live pretty comfortably on that.

  • All government employees working from home should have to retain daycare spaces for younger kids that need supervision all day.
    If you have kids staying at home while you are working, you don’t qualify to work at home. People working at home are the ones making the rules for the rest of the population that can not work from home.

  • Typical caller. Still in debt but continues to have more children then wants to be a “stay at home mom” with no job. She’ll rack up more debt putting all the pressure on her husband. SMH

  • People do realize they planned for baby number 3 and number 4 came through as a surprise. They will be ok. Staying home the first 2 years of the kids lives will actually save them a ton on daycare and babysitters/nannies. By the time they’re ready for preschool she can go back to work. Congratulations.

  • Stay at home and open a small daycare. $200 a child a week. 6 kids including yours is 62k a yr.
    Be creative and adapt.

    My friend turned there garage into a daycare and they are loving it.
    Its still work but it fits the life needs.

  • When we started the plan the first thing I did was come home. Yielding about $200 per month after daycare we decided I would make that difference up by being the home economist. Best decision we ever made!

  • 30k is nothing, she need to just stay at home. Her husband should be sole provider anyway. That’s what comes with being a husband.

  • I am a single mom of two kids. 2 and 5. Their father’s refuse to help and they can. Have opportunities to work but don’t have money to watch my two year old consistently. I just want to work and provide a better life for me and my kids. I feel stuck at home and I don’t want to be here full time.

  • Stay home…figure out the cost of the gas, clothes, lunch etc when you are working…that and daycare pretty much cancels out you $30,000….

    You sound smart enough to coupon for all your household extras….and start doing it for diapers now…or use cloth….barter for hair or other services…youre going to be home might as well watch your stylist kids a few times for free hair services…etc…and neighbors…trade date night sitting…you can do this And save money doing it! Think of the nice tax deductions…2 more kids and less income…lol

    Enjoy every minute! Take tons of pictures and find lots of free stuff to do with the kids!!

  • Wrong, Dave. The first question is NOT “What does Tracy want to do?” It’s “What is best for the kids?” You’ll regret outsourcing your parenting.

  • Women can not afford to be SAHM’s in 2018. However, with all those children, she doesnt have much chose; she needs to find a way to get more education(college online) and triple+ her income. She will be in big trouble if this marriage doesnt last. Congrats and good luck!

  • This is silly… I was born in Richmond during the 80’s along with my younger brother and my parents were make 70k+…. In the 80s!!! Their family size is exceeding their income. Increase you income than decide if you should stay home or not.

  • I always suggest being a stay at home mom at least until kindergarten, if at all possible. It is beyond beneficial for the children’s emotional health & growth to spend time with mom when they are that little. & Daycare is astronomically expensive. Raise you children the way you want to, & then go back to work when they are all school age. (If financially possible)

  • Stay home. Duh. If she decides to leave them in daycare the kids won’t have any connection to their parents and in the future the kids will be rebellious etc

  • Stay home and open a daycare if you love kids. My mother quit her job and started a daycare. She watched 7 kids along with my 2 brothers and I. It saved my parents a lot of money and she made good money doing it.

  • My son has autism and I can’t find any daycares that want him. They kick him out just days after enrolling him and call me to come get him. I don’t know how I’m supposed to work to provide for us. It’s so stressful and frustrating.

  • Also consider if you can return to your job at a later time or get a job or equal/greater value and if your time missed as a stay at home will need to be “accounted for” should you return the workforce along with any additional training you may have to take. Also what benefits do you lose if any that your husband can’t make up like health insurance.

  • Tracy and her husband should have thought about all of this before they decided to get pregnant. Basically either tracy is going to work or that family is going to be cash poor for a long time….��‍♂️

  • I understand the value of your plans for retirement and I know the more money you have, the better. But sometimes the things you say don’t seem right. Of course everyone would like to spend their retirement, traveling and doing anything they like to, but I know plenty of people that have no savings and live off of social security and they don’t ever have to eat dog food or depend on family. Maybe you should talk about plans for people that are in that kind of situation, since there are lots of them. Just sayin’, no disrespect intended.:)

  • Stay home with kids until youngest is 5yrs old, you can always make more money but cant get time back, babysit, tutoring or do some online stuff, get creative get kids ideas on money,”. You got this! Both of you! You guys rock!!!

  • There is more to this decision than just money. It is also important to consider the development of infants and toddlers: they are attached to their mothers, and breastfeeding is very important to brain development. If at all possible, be there for your children for the first 1-2 years. That time period is SO critical to develop strong attachment. A career can always happen at a later time.

  • Your babies are only little for so long! You can afford it! I’ve been a SAHM since 2008, and I have an almost 10 year old, almost 6 year old, and almost 1 year old. We have amazing insurance and housing is provided to us with my husband being in the military. We don’t make nearly as much as your husband but we make it work!

  • Im a stay mom and I love to take care of baby and enjoy him everyday, but my husband annoys me and degrades me everyday saying I don’t make any money, making me feel bad. He has savings and we live ok, no luxuries, no debt either, but I feel bad that my husbands wants me to provide money.

  • Not only is daycare expensive, most centers aren’t open during the hours when a lot of parents are scheduled to work: nights, weekends and holidays.

  • I have no savings in bank no income yet, no car, no dadda to unborn baby (23weeks) and i dont wanna do adoption. I have no support no mom no dad no uncle no anyone! I need to start asap working pregnant now save what i can and find a loan or a homeless shelter for once baby comes, no one wants to babysit a 3-6 month old newborn

  • So I missing something. Where you on welfare? And if you were dont you have to report your earnings to welfare?

    I am in my 2nd trimester and I have already called daycares to see how much it will be for my baby but if I can’t afford it I will be going on welfare. I’m afraid the father wont be able to help me. I have do have a business and getting my products together to sell so I can profit. But I’m also saving for a baby and I dont make a lot.

    I am also worried about how soon I can getting back to my business and start selling after having the baby

  • I wish to get lots of cash in just a couple hours every day so I tried out using each and every approach and system about it. Luckily, my good friend told me about “Sοdοva dkv” (Google it). Try seeking it on Google. Every single day, my normal earnings is 100 dollars. I urge you to give it a shot as well..

  • This was reassuring, i’ve been struggling with finding a job and also being able to care for my son on my own without daycare and i’ve been stressed about it but this helped a lot. ♥♥ thanks!

  • I don’t understand what’s with the mentality of certain individuals that blame other people for how and why they have so many kids on a particular income as if their thoughts of a certain income that an individual must have or make to have a family is not in their opinion “enough”. I believe that way too many people today live well over their means rather than living blow their means and still live a non depriving and well satisfying, happy life. I am a 34yr-old father of 3, a 14yr-old, a 4yr-old and a 2yr-old and I make under $50,000 a year while living in Central Jersey, one of the most expensive states to live in today and yes I have some debts but nothing crazy and I’m not depriving my family we have a roof over our head and food always on our table, 2 vehicles and we do go out from time to time. Not to mention my wife is a stay-at-home mom. Your defined in my opinion on how you live your life not on how much you necessarily make. Is it easy? No, not all the time. Sometimes we run into issues like any other normal family obviously I’m not rich but we never questioned or doubted our decision of having children based on our financial situation. In this particular situation according to the comments on this page I think too many people put out negative conclusions as to why they think or believe in their opinion that in this case this family is not wise because their income to child ratio does not add up. Yes we do live in an expensive age, but that doesn’t mean that because an individual can’t grasp the fact of making it happen with such an income, that this would apply to everyone. Now perhaps the majority but that would depend on your ability to manage and budget yourself accordingly.

  • See thats the problem with Dave, he is always putting money over morality.
    He offers alot of great truths and principals, most are Biblical, but he is always quick to throw mothers under the bus with regards to their children.
    The Bible is very clear on what the womens role is, and its not bringing home a paycheck.

  • Im going thru this now.! Everytime i try and find daycare and everything is set..something goes wrong. Ive been wanting to stay at home with my kids but never could afford it. I still cant but i feel god pushing me to stay home. Ive been fighting it because i dont know where im going to provide for 4 children. Im giving it to god! I cant handle fighting anymore.!! Your video gave me that extra push i needed.

  • Hi from Canada ����!!!! Single Mom going through a divorce, and the whole experience has flatten me emotionally/spiritually. I tried for months to find a job, and was only able to get a temporary Christmas �� job. We have subsided daycare in Canada ( with a good job the subsidies are very affordable). However the minimum wage job I had barely covered the cost of the subsidy amount. I had a career before I met my husband but when I got pregnant he was the main provider so I haven’t worked in 4 years. Since I Haven’t worked in 4 years many, employers would not consider me, so frustrating. And the temporary job I did get I had to call in sick several times because my daughter was always sent home due to being sick. My ego has taken a huge hit, I literally feel like I’m in this huge mental fog. I pray all the time but feel no peace. I have no help from family, and I’m a professional artist but the depression has taken over. Great video and please pray for a sister up North. ��

  • Hi I’m a single mum in New Zealand to one 2 year old girl. I’m hoping to have another baby (fertility treatment) but trying to figure out paying for daycare for 2 kids in the future and keeping my job. It’s a struggle. Thanks for your videos, Amanda
