Do you want to be a work-at-home parent?

Many people think that if they work from home and have children, that it will be very easy. Sometimes it can be, but sometimes it isn’t always the best situation. Children are a wonderful thing, but sometimes being successful with your career and trying to play with children at the same time would be hard.

There are many things to think about before you decide if being a work-at-home parent is for you.

Will you be productive?

Being at home with your children is a wonderful thing, however, it can be very hard to take care of a family and work at home at the same time. You might have to find a babysitter from time to time if you cannot get any work done. You will have to weight the positives versus the negatives. This is different with each family.

Even though you are working at home, you should not feel bad about not being able to do EVERYTHING. Just like if you were at work and not working at home, it is hard to be able to take care of a home and work. Just because you are home doesn’t mean that you are not working! And don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

You have to do what is best for you and your family.

Realize that there are scams out there.

Whenever I see a spam comment online on websites such as Facebook or forums, most of the time they will say that you can make $168,500 per minute or something crazy like that.

You know the saying… If something sounds too good to be true than it probably is. Know the different between a scam and a quality work-at-home position.
