Child care costs: Moms Mean Business
Surveys consistently find that the majority of mothers want to work (part-time is ideal, they tell researchers), but affordable, quality child care is often cited as the No. 1 reason they stay out of the workforce. On this podcast episode, guest Jennifer Owen, editorial director of Working Mother Media, and director of the Working Mother Research Institute, discusses creative and practical ways to navigate child care. Here are some of her tips: Brainstorm with friends and other parents in your community about creative, cooperative solutions to childcare challenges, including taking turns watching each other’s children during school days off and nanny shares. Research after-school and summer options at area park services, YMCA, community centers, and houses of worship. Never lose sight of the big picture. If you or your spouse decides to stay home, make sure you maintain your skills, network and earning potential.
