I discovered already some time ago that working from home is one of the best ways to earn a living and at the same time spend time with my family. I am going to give you a few reasons why working from home is such a good idea if you happen to be a wife and mother just like me.
1. Probably the most important reason to work from home is that you get to spend time with your children. Personally, to me it is the most important reason to work from home. If your husband works from home as well, you will additionally get to spend a lot of time with him, which can help you strengthen your relationship with him. When it comes to your children, by working from home you will always be there for them. If they are very small, you will have a chance to witness their first steps, their first words, and many other “first” things. If they are older and already go to school, you will be there for them every time they get back from school. You will be able to lend them an ear and listen to everything that happened to them on that particular day.
2. When your kids are still small, working from home will allow you to save money on childcare. The costs of childcare can add up, especially if you need to hire somebody to watch your kids in your home when you are not there. I definitely prefer to keep an eye on my children myself rather than have somebody come to my house and do it for me. If you are anything like me, you will do everything so that you can work from home and watch your kids all the time.
3. Working from home is all about waking up in the morning, pouring yourself a cup of coffee and sitting in front of your computer to start another exciting day. There is no need to commute anywhere, which can be a pain especially in colder weather or when it rains. Saving time and money on commuting to work is just another reason to work from home. You will no longer have to sit there in traffic and commuting.
I hope that I gave you enough reasons to convince you that if you are a mother and need to make some money on the side in addition to your husband’s salary, working from home is a splendid idea you will never regret.
