It goes way beyond “time with my kids”. The thought of leaving my kids at daycare or anything remotely like it literally makes me sick to my stomach – I want to be the sole central influence on them in these formative years.
I do a lot of my work when the kids are napping, and late at night. Or when my husband is home. We save literally thousands of dollars per month in childcare costs. I think that as childcare costs continue to rise we will see a massive influx of parents working from home.
