  • It's totally about what would make you feel fulfilled as a person. Would you find the job rewarding and something you'd really like to do? Would you have reliable childcare and be able to manage the added pressures of a job plus family? Can you do it all guilt free and know that a happy mom makes for a happy family? Your children will have a wonderful example to follow if you do what is best for you. I wish you all the best in deciding what is best for you and your family.

  • Well I personally work from home, but it's up to you. Do you NEED the money, or are you able to stay home? What is needed more, extra income coming in or your children? You have to do what you have to do.

    Best Wishes!!

  • If you need the money, by all means take the job. If you start out now, you might be able to really make this your career.
