A Common Conundrum for Parents: Childcare Expenses that Drain your Pocketbook

http://www.meritworld.com/

I can empathize with new parents when they talk about the seemingly-impossible task of finding great schooling that doesn’t break the bank.  Sending your preschooler off is hard enough emotionally, and becomes even more challenging when factor in your requirements: you want it to be a stimulating, educational, and reliable start and a comfortable place for your kids to be while you are at work.  For most options, you end up spending more money on tuition than you actually earn each month. Mothers agonize over this exact scenario all the time.

 

When my daughters were younger, I faced a similar predicament.  I knew that the socialization they would acquire from school was crucial, but I could not stomach the idea of sending them to some mediocre institution that couldn't keep up with their eager, sponge-like minds.  I literally stayed up nights losing countless hours of sleep, and after much consideration, I came up with a solution and put my plan into action.

 

I hired a local teacher who specialized in enriching science, math and the arts to work out of our home, providing the girls with an enriching education.  They were no longer subjected to the mad morning rush out the door.  They could wake at their own pace and eat a warm and nutritious meal in our kitchen.  They spent the day with their teacher that I had hand-picked and were completely enjoying learning!  Initially this came at a small financial cost, but I quickly began to network mothers looking for quality childcare.  Soon we had two to three other children joining our program in our own home each morning to participate.  With the addition of a few other contributing families to the program, we weren't paying a dime for childcare and the kids were getting a top quality education—just the way I had hoped for.  Not only did these providers do an excellent job of teaching and taking care of the kids, when the kids napped, they would prepare meals, do chores around the house, and complete the busy work that I used to spend my evenings getting done.  It was such a relief to see my children happy and thriving; and at the end of the day our family was able to relax and enjoy our time together.  I didn’t have to sacrifice my career I had worked so hard to build in order to see our children get a top-notch education.  And the icing on the cake?  We didn’t pay a penny for any of it.

 

All of my friends thought that we paid a small fortune to have this program in our home.  After showing dozens of families how to set this up for their families, I wrote a straight-forward and easy to follow book that helps other...  Having a successful career while providing your children with a quality education is something that can certainly be accomplished, and it is far easier than you imagined.
