Many new moms contemplate the idea of becoming a stay-at-home mom rather than stay in the workplace. Many moms like the idea of staying home, but returning to work once their kids are a little older. Joining the workforce after some time away can be a tough thing to do. You want to make sure you’re keeping up with your skills so you don’t lose them by the time you return or begin looking for a job.
The decision to stay at home with your child(ren) is a tough one. So many questions may go through your mind as you are trying to decide. Will I miss working? Will I miss my child? How and in what way will I be able to contribute to my family? It really is a bittersweet time.
